Greece Talks Must Intensify Before Riga Meeting, EU Says

Talks on resolving Greece’s financial crisis must “intensify” if euro-area finance ministers are to be able to assess the country’s reform commitments when they meet next week, the European Commission said.

“At this stage, we are not satisfied with the level of progress made so far,” Margaritis Schinas, spokesman for the European Union executive, told reporters in Brussels on Thursday. “Everything is now on the table and what we need is to progress swiftly in time for the informal Eurogroup of April 24 to take stock.”
