The Positive Outcome of the Negotiations is of Primary Importance, EC Spokesman Says

The positive outcome of the technical consultations underway between the Greek authorities and the institutions is of primary importance, European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said on Monday. Asked whether a solution for Greece will be possibly sought during the EU summit at the end of the week in Brussels, Schinas said that "the situation is serious and the priority this week is to continue working on implementing the decisions taken at the February 20 Eurogroup." The European Commission spokesman underlined that technical discussions continue, including the discussions in Athens, pointing out that the time framework is known. "Before we move to a European Council level, we should allow experts to discuss at a technical level. These technical discussions are ongoing. Now it is the time of experts," he stated.
