The Minister of Finance Euclid Tsakalotos argued that the Greek government and the International Monetary Fund want a clear solution for the public debt, in a statement for the Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper.

Mr. Tsakalotos argue that debt relief is an essential component of Greece’s path to exiting the bailout program in 2018. Debt relief, he added, is something that Greece’s European partners are about to do now and in the future.

The Finance Minister’s statements came after the recent comments of IMF’s Gerry Rice, who underlined that debt relief measures could be linked to the conditional accomplishment of certain targets. These measures do not need to be implemented in advance for the Fund to participate n the Greek program, he added.
