Pointing out the difficulty of briefing Parliament while the negotiation was still ongoing and nothing was finalized, Tsakalotos said the prime minister’s speech a few days earlier had explained a number of points concerning the Eurogroup’s decision on February 20.

The government’s goal is to conclude talks on the program’s measures and counter-measures in time for the next Eurogroup in March, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos told MPs on Tuesday. Briefing Parliament’s Economic Affairs Committee, Tsakalotos also denied that the government had tried to delay the completion of the review.

“We did not try to delay but negotiated on what we consider part of the solution, based on our principles,” Tsakalotos said.
