  • [01] Gov't sources: Some countries do not want the agreement

    ANA/MPA---Government sources said early Sunday regarding the developments at the Eurogroup meeting that was interrupted after midnight and resumed on Sunday, that it is clear that some countries, for reasons not related with the reforms and the Greek programme, do not want an agreement.

    The same sources noted that "while there was in principle agreement, a group of countries insisted on the issue of credibility, without however specifying what exactly they want".

    "It is clear that some countries do not want the agreement" noted the same sources.

    [02] Moscovici: We want deep reforms in Greece

    "We want Greece to make deep reforms as member of the eurozone" stated European Commissioner for Economic Affairs Pierre Moscovici on Sunday before the restart of the Eurogroup meeting " The discussions yesterday (Saturday) he noted were long and difficult and today we must focus on the conditions, that must be fulfilled, in order the negotiations for the new programme to start.

    "The Greek government must do more in a short and long term period" said the French Commissioner noting that the conditions must be implemented rapidly.

    "We need a financially ambitious and politically realistic agreement" he said adding "The people expect from us to rise to the occasion and to secure Greece's position in the eurozone".

    Concluding, Moscovici said "We hope that at the end of the day we will have an agreement that will secure eurozone's integrity".
