Brussels, 20 February 2018 (MIA) - EU finance commissioner Pierre Moscovici said Monday that "99 percent" of the third review of the Greek bailout have been accomplished and that the Eurogroup should be able to agree to a new €5.7-billion disbursement at its next meeting in March.
He added that the two remaining issues - the development of e-auctions for seized properties and the development of a privatised site near Athens - would be solved soon, EUObserver reports.
The head of the European Stability Mechanism, Klaus Regling, said in comments after the meeting that he does not “anticipate” the 5.7-billion-euro tranche being disbursed before mid-March, partly due to the scheduling constraints of a German parliamentary committee that has to green light the disbursement, according to Bloomberg. sk/09:56
