Anastasiades: Greece is on the right track, as the EU response to IMF demands indicates

Greece has made progress in its programme and seems to be on the right track, Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) due to be published in full on Tuesday.

According to Cyprus’ president, this was reflected “in the reaction of [Greece’s EU] partners to the demands of the IMF,” while he expressed hope that there will be a good outcome in the discussion on Greece.

Regarding the possibility of a visit by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to Cyprus, Anastasiades said that there were no developments in the Cyprus issue at present to justify a visit. With the problems that Greece was currently facing in the Eurogroup, he added, the prime minister’s time would be better spent on something useful.

He added that there was daily contact with Tsipras on the Cyprus issue and that cooperation between them was “beyond excellent”.
