European Council President Donald Tusk urges Eurogroup to agree on Greece

European Council President Donald Tusk in his remarks before the EU-Japan Leaders’ meeting, referred to the Greek issue as follows:

“During these challenging times, both in terms of geopolitics and economics, we need to make sure that Europe contributes to stability rather than global instability. We should do all in our power to dispel uncertainties. There is no doubt that a successful completion of the ongoing review of Greece’s programme would strengthen confidence. I urge Finance Ministers to reach an agreement very soon and I hope that by the end of May, when we meet at the G7 summit, the implementation of Greece’s programme is positively assessed. I want to encourage all the ministers and institutions to re-double their efforts in finalising the review.”
