Referring to the technical talks to be held in the immediate future in the context of the specification of the structural reforms presented by Greece, Noonan said upon his arrival at the Eurogroup that a meeting was scheduled to take place earlier with the Greek authorities and Greece decided that the government Vice President’s office will lead the negotiations with the country’s creditors.

Noonan also said that considerable progress has been made and underlined that Greece will secure a part of the 7.2-billion-euro tranche if it meets part of its commitments. He also said that the Eurogroup will focus on the political guidelines that will have to be given and not on processing technical details.
