  • [01] FinMin Varoufakis in Washington
  • [02] German FinMin Schaeuble: Greek programme ends on June 30

  • [01] FinMin Varoufakis in Washington

    Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis' discussions in Washington, where he will represent Greece in the spring meeting of the IMF and the World Bank, are termed as rather important for the progress of the negotiations with the lenders.

    All the representatives of the institutions will attend the meeting while Varoufakis is expected to have a series of further meetings.

    At 16.15 local time, Varoufakis will attend a reception at the White House to celebrate Greek Independence and he will have a private meeting with US President Barack Obama.

    At 14.30, the Greek Finance Minister will be the keynote speaker at the discussion entitled "The Greek economy and its global partners" within the framework of a conference organized by the Brookings Institute.

    The discussion is expected to focus on the challenges that the Greek economy is facing, the prospects for reforms and economic recovery and the details of a future strategic agreement of Greece, the European partners and the IMF.

    According to Finance ministry's officials, the meeting is rather important both for Greece and the eurozone, as German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble will also participate. Varoufakis is expected to meet with ECB president Mario Draghi, the US Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew and his Italian counterpart Pier Carlo Padoan.

    [02] German FinMin Schaeuble: Greek programme ends on June 30

    ANA/MPA---German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in an interview with Bloomberg Television in New York on Wednesday that if Greece wants to receive the rest of its financial aid, a solution will have to be reached by June 30.

    The minister said the Greek programme has been extended twice until now and that it expires on June 30.

    He also said that while the decisions ultimately lie with Greece, "whatever happens: we know that Greece is part of the European Union and that we also have a responsibility for Greece and we will never disregard this solidarity."

    "If Greece wants support, we will give this support as in recent years, but of course within the framework of what we agreed," Schaeuble added.
