Greek PM To Resume Talks With Creditors in Hellenic Parliament



Tsipras

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will hold a Parliament representatives meeting on Friday at 6 pm local time in order to resume talks with international creditors regarding the Greek government’s agonizing efforts to reach an agreement that will release €7.2bn in financial aid.

Returning to Athens on Thursday, Greece’s Prime Minister launched a series of meetings with the government’s economic team and ministers, after Wednesday night’s meeting between him and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels failed to achieve a breakthrough.

The meetings started at 3 pm with Alternate Foreign Minister for International Economic Relations Euclid Tsakalotos and Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, who were joined about an hour later by government Vice-President Yiannis Dragasakis.

According to unknown sources, Alexis Tsipras may meet with the Political Secretariat of Syriza in order to inform all its members about government’s latest achievements. Furthermore, an EU official said on Thursday that Tsipras could visit Brussels again to attend further negotiations with senior EU officials about a potential debt deal as early as Friday night.
