  • [01] Negotiations at Eurogroup focusing on Greek debt, says source

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/C. Vasilaki) - Negotiations at Tuesday's Eurogroup meeting are focusing on Greece's debt, a source from the European Commission said, adding that Eurozone's finance ministers are expected to approve the disbursement of the loan installment totaling 10.3 billion euros.

    The same source said there are still some pending issues which will be included in the final statement. Commenting on these issues, a government source said they are not decisive and will be resolved summarily.

    On the issue of the country's debt, the distance between the IMF and Germany is still great and the aim is to achieve greater convergence today. The Commission source said that after pressure by the IMF, the weight has shifted towards measures that will be taken in the short term. However, Eurozone officials hope some deal will eventually be achieved with the IMF tonight, as there's political pressure to avoid reviving the crisis.

    [02] More than 2,000 moved in first day of Idomeni evacuation

    A police operation that began early in the morning to evacuate the refugee and migrant camp in Idomeni has now stopped for the night and will continue in the following days, authorities announced late on Tuesday.

    Police said that 42 coaches carrying more than 2,000 refugees and migrants have left the camp, bound for various accommodation centres in Thessaloniki and nearby areas.

    A strong contingent of police will remain on the scene while the evacuation process continues, until the camp hosting roughly 9,000 people in the last months has fully emptied.
