An agreement between Greece and its international creditors is a matter of days, Bank of Greece (BoG) Governor Yiannis Stournaras said on Greek TV on Thursday.
According to information he receives, “we are very close [to a deal] and it is a matter of days now.”
Commenting on the contingency measures requested by the institutions to close the program review, he said they are only demanded by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). “These measures exist solely because the IMF demands them. I understand the other three are not requesting them; neither the ECB nor the European Commission, or the ESM. It is an issue raised by the IMF,” he was quoted as saying.
“Beyond this, since this mechanism has been accepted by the Greek side, it is a detail that still remains to be clarified,” he added.
