Troika to Leave Athens End February Provided Reforms Are Completed, EU's Moscovici Says

The current review with the troika must be brought to a successful conclusion as soon as possible, so that the troika can leave at the end of the technical two-month extension period, towards the end of February, and "we can move to another phase of our relationship with Greece," with lighter surveillance, EU Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Pierre Moscovici said on Tuesday.
This is my personal and political will, Moscovici noted during a press conference, after the completion of his two-day visit to Athens.
"Greece's place in the eurozone is not longer in question as it was...Let me underline that, for me, there was never any question [whether] Greece should remain in the Eurozone. I fought for that when I was finance minister in France in 2012... It was always my personal conviction that Greece's place is in the Eurozone, that Greece needs the Euro and the Eurozone needs Greece."
