We have an agreement, says Eurogroup chief Djisselbloem
We have an agreement for reforms and timetable for the Greek programme. The technical staff will return to Athens as soon as possible” stated Jeroen Djisselbloem after the end of the Eurogroup meeting on Friday in Valetta.
The major issues have closed “only a few details are still pending and from now on we will proceed very quickly” he added.
He said that the heads of the delegation will return to Athens as soon as possible in order for a comprehensive technical staff agreement to be reached.
Agreement ‘balanced’, European Commissioner Moscovici says
European Commissioner Pierre Moscovici noted that an in principle agreement came after months of “difficult negotiations” which intensified in the last weeks, days and hours, after the end of the Eurogroup meeting on Friday in Valetta.
He called the agreement “balanced” because despite the additional fiscal effort that Greece is called to make in 2019 and 2020, there is the prospect of a package of offset measures that are very important for the support of the social groups stricken by the crisis.
