Μ. Sapin: Clear direction on Greece essential

A clearcut direction must be given regarding the Greek issue, French Finance Minister Michel Sapin said, in a doorstep statement as he arrived for the Eurogroup meeting on Monday.

“I believe that for Greece and for Europe it is necessary to give a direction, a clear course that there is, obviously, a solution – both for the good of Greece and for the cohesion of Europe,” he noted, adding that Greece will be the central topic at Monday’s Eurogroup.

Sapin said that the current situation in Greece was nothing like the summer of 2015 and that there were now “solutions ahead” and noted that things had to be made clear so that there could be stability and a return of investments to Greece.
