Greek debt is on Eurogroup’s table

The issue of the Greek debt sustainability will be put on the negotiating table at the Eurogroup meeting on Monday. The aim is to achieve a comprehensive, political agreement.

The agreement must include: the ratification of the institutions’ draft report on the measures voted, the definition of the primary surpluses that Greece must meet after 2018 and the definition of the medium-term measures on debt so that the IMF participates in the Greek programme.

Before the meeting of the finance ministers, an extraordinary meeting of the EuroWorking Group will take place.

It is expected to be a long meeting as all sides are aware of the importance of reaching an agreement. However, there is still distance between Berlin and the IMF.
