Talks between EU and Greece to Continue, Eurogroup Chair Dijsselbloem Says

The talks between Greece and its EU partners on the country's fiscal programme will continue at the Eurogroup meeting of Monday, February 16, Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem said at a press conference early on Thursday morning, adding that there would be no joint statement.
Following an extraordinary Eurogroup meeting that began late on Wednesday on Greece's programme which expires end-February, Dijsselbloem joined International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde and EU Economics Commissioner Pierre Moscovici in saying that the talks would continue.
The IMF, the European Commission and the European Central Bank are Greece's bailout lenders.
In statements after the conclusion of the meeting, Luxembourg Finance Minister Pierre Gramegna said that the eurozone finance ministers had agreed to "the road forward," adding that there were no clashes during talks but that the issue of Greece's funding would continue the next few days, leading to Monday's Eurogroup meeting.
