Hardouvelis: Troika officials will soon return to Athens

Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis after his meeting with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Government Vice-President and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos, expressed his optimism that troika officials will soon return to Athens to restart negotiations, while he also said there’s still time to find a solution until the crucial Eurogroup meeting in December.

According to Hardouvelis, the troika has not submitted any new requirements and the issues that remain in the agenda are the ones already incorporated in the medium-term fiscal programme.
