Finance ministry rejects report that Greece will run out of cash on April 9

The finance ministry denied categorically on Thursday a news report by Reuters on alleged requests made by the Greek government to its EU partners during a teleconference of eurozone deputy finance ministers on Wednesday.

“The finance ministry categorically denies the anonymous report by Reuters for issues that were allegedly discussed during the Euro Working Group on April 1,” the ministry said in a statement.

Reuters, citing Eurozone officials, reported on Thursday that the Greek government told its creditors during the teleconference that it will run out of cash on April 9 and asked them to disburse a tranche of its rescue loans before reforms are agreed and implemented.
