Hollande: Agreement on Greece A Matter of Days or Hours

A deal between Greece and the institutions is imminent, French President Francois Hollande said on Wednesday, while addressing an Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) meeting in Paris.
"It is a matter of a few days....we are a few hours away from a possible settlement," he said, adding that excessive demands on Greece will prevent the country's return to growth.
At the same time, he stressed that certain requirements had to be met by Greece for such a deal to take place. "To not demand anything, or something that would be considered not adequate, would have repercussions for the entire eurozone," he said.
