PM Tsipras: First program review will conclude without any additional measures

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras described the Eurogroup meeting on Monday as a particularly positive development for Greece in a meeting with President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, whom he briefed on the results of the talks held in Brussels.

The prime minister said the first program review will conclude without any additional measures and Eurozone finance ministers also presented a road map for providing debt relief, which “constitutes a necessary expression of solidarity from the EU towards the Greek people”.

He thanked Pavlopoulos for his assistance in this effort and told him he spoke with leaders of the opposition parties to start a meaningful dialog.

On his side, the President said that on Europe Day, Greece remains an unwavering pillar of the Eurozone and the EU, adding that this is the decision of all the democratic forces and the majority of the Greek people.

Earlier, Tsipras spoke with New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis, Communist Party leader Dimitris Koutsoumbas, PASOK leader Fofi Gennimata and Centrists’ Union leader Vasilis Leventis, to inform them that he’s available for any clarifications concerning the meeting.
