“The 4.5 billion euro measures will not be made acceptable,” he underlined.
Tzanakopoulos said that the government aims at a decision during the January 26 Eurogroup that will pave the way for the conclusion of the programme review as soon as possible with a key date the meeting of the ECB Board, on 9 March.”
He underlined that the government is not to blame for the delay of the programme review as it complies with the agreements and meets its targets. He noted that what it matters is to conclude the programme review and participate in the ECB quantitative easing programme.
