Frieden Says Details Still to Be Sorted Out on Greek Program

Luxembourg Finance Minister Luc Frieden, speaking after a meeting with euro-region counterparts in Brussels, called the “overall assessment” on Greece’s recent consolidation efforts “very positive.”

But generally, the finance ministers are of the opinion that Greece has done what was expected of them so that the next steps can be taken.”
