Schinas: Commission wants ‘balanced and fair’ deal for Greece

The European Commission wants a balanced and fair agreement for Greece when the mission chiefs will return to Athens net week, its spokesman Margaritis Schinas said during a press briefing on Thursday.

“We have stressed repeatedly the need for an ambitious but at the same time balanced and fair agreement which will help the Greek people in the path towards a socially cohesive recovery. This is the spirit in which we are working and continue to work,” Schinas said.

Asked whether Greece is receiving the solidarity it needs, following the latest decisions by the Eurogroup, he said: “We remain committed to a reform procedure accompanied by a package of social measures which will allow the Greek people to see the end of the tunnel.”
