Certain EU circles always try to undermine the climate before the negotiation, gov’t sources say
“The stance of certain EU circles before the beginning of the negotiation is known. They try to undermine the climate and convey a certain impression,” government sources said on Friday in relation to Eurogroup head Jeroen Dijsselbloem’s statement.
According to a Bloomberg report, Dijsselbloem estimated that the upcoming Greek bailout program review will take months, rather than weeks.
For the process to be completed, a series of developments will be necessary, he said. “First an agreement is required on all the open issues, with social security reform being the most important.”
It is only after the completion of the review that the Eurogroup will convene to decide on any bailout disbursements and start discussions on a further lightening of the Greek state debt, he added.
