“Greece simply must dig deep and find a motive to step up now when it’s tough, and create the best list of reforms. A deal with the creditors from the IMF and the euro zone is still possible, but everything must be solved in the next few days. Time is really pressing us “– a top European Union official said.
European Union Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici made an interesting comment during an interview for RTL radio. “Greek tragedy is one of my favorite reading genres, but I really hope that this one will have a happy ending after all. The next days must be like dialog s all the time, intensity and solutions to be on the agenda since daybreak”. June 18 is the day when a meeting between the euro zone finance ministers is scheduled, so that could be the deadline.
The Economic Affairs Commissioner also added that although there are still pretty big differences between the two negotiation sides, particularly in Greece’s primary surplus, there is still space for landing. The most important thing, a political will, is still here, and we can come to a deal.
Scheduled then denied, arranged then cancelled. That is the saga about the meeting between the Prime Minister of Greece, Alexis Tsipras, Germanys Chancellor Angela Merkel and the President of France, Francois Hollande. In the end, a new round of talks was held late last night. Greece’s Prime Minister agreed to do everything he can in order to intensify the negotiations with the creditors. The end of the month is coming fast, and without a deal, his country could sunk deep.
Moscovici also made a comment about the three leaders meeting saying:” The list of reforms Greece should deliver, must guarantee that they can achieve and fulfill the promises they gave their creditors. They are near that, but a few more corrections must be made as soon as possible.
