Eurogroup and Greece still at odds over financial aid for debt-stricken country
The Eurogroup has not been able to agree with Greece on a way forward on further financial support for the crisis-stricken country. Eurogroup chairman Jeroen Dijsselbloem said early Thursday morning in Brussels that the talks will continue next Monday. cep expert Matthias Kullas still believes that Greece will come to an agreement with its eurozone peers in the end. An exit by Greece from the currency union would “entail unforeseeable consequences,” Kullas argued in an interview with German daily Reutlinger General-Anzeiger published Thursday. “All politicians are shying away from such a scenario.” However, both sides would likely bargain right till the last minute, Kullas predicted. Still, the creditors were in a stronger position in the talks, he reckoned.
