Monday, 11 May 2015
"We want in Monday's Eurogroup a clear statement of the progress made in the last period", said according to sources, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the government council's meeting on Sunday. However, in any case, any agreement reached must be within the framework of the people's mandate, he clarified.
The same sources noted that Greece has made recorded efforts and is totally consistent on the fulfillment of its obligations proving in parallel its volition for an agreement, of a mutually beneficial agreement, for which, and Greece's partners should make the appropriate moves.
Government's circles estimate that a positive recording in Monday's Eurogroup statement will be equivalent with a positive and optimistic message towards the prospect of reaching an agreement and in parallel will be a message to ECB to relax the suffocating financial framework on Greece. After Tsipras' opening speech, the government council was briefed by Government Vice President Yiannis Dragasakis, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and Alternate Foreign Minister for Economic International Relations Euclid Tsakalotos.
