European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and European Council president Donald Tusk on Thursday expressed their pleasure on the Eurogroup’s agreement for Greece during a joint press conference before the start of the GF Summit at Ise-Shima, Japan.
“We are pleased that the Eurogroup reached an agreement not only among the 19 members but also with the IMF” stated Juncker and reminded that last year at the Elmau Summit, Greece was the most dramatic issue in the agenda adding that this issue has now been solved and the measures for the Greek debt, that the Eurogroup announced, have started to be highly considered.
On his part, Tusk said that the Eurogroup‘s agreement sent a “strong message of stability” for Greece and for the eurozone as well as for the international economy. “I would like to thank the Greek people and particularly prime minister Alexis Tsipras for their determination to put an end to this crisis by reforming the country. The Greek tragedy will not return,” stated Tusk.
