Feb. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Luxembourg’s Jean-Claude Juncker, who leads the group of euro-area finance ministers, said he won’t convene the group to discuss Greece before Feb. 9.
“I haven’t yet called a meeting of the eurogroup for this week because I can only do this once I see that the conditions are in place to bring about a solution on private-sector involvement and so that the second Greek program can be implemented,” Juncker said on RTL radio today.
“Only when I see that all these elements are coming together can I call a eurogroup meeting,” he said. “This is certainly not before Thursday.”
