Eurogroup May Meet Again This Week on Greece, Dijsselbloem Says

Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

Nov. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem said euro area finance chiefs may have to return to Brussels later this week to finalize a decision on Greek rescue aid.

“I certainly do not rule that out,” Dijsselbloem told reporters as he entered today’s talks. “We’ll not put ourselves under time pressure. If more time is needed, we’ll take it. If I have to travel back and forth another two or three times before we come to a decision, I will do that.”

Greece faces a 5 billion-euro bill redemption on Nov. 16. Dijsselbloem said this deadline wouldn’t force euro-area finance ministers to rush a decision.

“The Greeks have left a lot of things until the last minute, so we’ll also take the time to consider where we are.”
