It is highly possible to reach an agreement on the debt very soon, stated government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos in an interview with radio “Athina 9.84” on Sunday.
Tzanakopoulos noted that “for us the main issue is the country to be included in the quantitative easing programme and “anything that leads to a debt settlement that will open the door to the country’s inclusion is acceptable for us” he underlined.
He clarified that, ahead of the Eurogroup meeting on May 22, the primary surpluses must be defined in order a comprehensive agreement to exist because on this depends the size of the mid-term measures for the debt. He noted that the discussion will certainly open at the next Eurogroup meeting and expressed the wish that it will be completed in the specific meeting.
“If we don’t succeed to complete the discussions on May 22 and some more days are needed, I believe it is not that terrible” Tzanakopoulos concluded.
