Euro Ministers to See If Greece Meets Conditions, De Jager Says

Euro-area finance ministers meeting in Brussels today will hear from Greece and the so-called troika if Greece has met the conditions for a second bailout program, Dutch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager said.

“We don’t yet know if this is sufficient” for Greece to qualify for a new 130 billion-euro lifeline, De Jager told reporters in Brussels today.

“We are going inside to hear what the troika, which is the European Commission, IMF and ECB, has to tell us,” he said. “I don’t know if it will be sufficient. We have demanded very strict conditions as Europe and they now say they are meeting this, we really have to check that’s the case.”
