European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs Pierre Moscovici said he was confident that an agreement on Greece can be reached “if not today then in the days to come,” in a doorstep statement as he arrived for the Eurogroup meeting on Monday.

Moscovici said he had “very positive, very fruitful meetings” with the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos and other ministers during his recent visit to Athens, on which he would update the Eurogroup.

“We are working on the first set of milestones, which are a precondition in order to decide for the disbursement of 2.0 billion euros that we really want to happen,” he said, noting most of the milestones are already adopted or decided.

“There is still a way to go, we are not yet completely there, but I am hopeful and confident that with the spirit of compromise that we have, with the good cooperation with the authorities, we can make it if not today then in the days to come,” he said, indicating that he expected a result hopefully within the week.

“We are not far from that but obviously there is still a little way to go,” he added.
