There will be no additional Eurogroup meeting this Thursday as more time is needed to achieve an agreement between the Greek government and the institutions, the spokesperson of the Eurogroup president, Michel Reijns, said on Tuesday in a tweet.

“No additional Eurogroup on Greece this Thursday, more time needed. Meeting on first review, contingency package and debt at later stage,” he said.
