Michel Sapin: Greece has made great efforts and is implementing the necessary reforms

Greece has made great efforts and is implementing the necessary reforms, French Finance Minister Michel Sapin said on Monday as he arrived at the Eurogroup meeting in Luxembourg.

“Greece is continuing its efforts and is implementing the reforms, many more than those made in the last few years,” Sapin told journalists, adding that Greece is implementing its part of the deal and when this happens, European solidarity follows.

He also said that the Eurogroup must recognize those efforts today and Europe must keep its promises to Greece.

Arriving after Sapin, his Finnish counterpart Petteri Orpo said Greece’s economy is improving and expressed his hope that the implementation of all the prior actions has been completed, as agreed.
