Dijsselbloem: Gave Sec. Lew Positive Message on Greece

Eurogroup head Jeroen Dijsselbloem said he is confident a deal on the Greek aid program can be reached as soon as next week as debt relief talks continue.

Dijsselbloem said the Greek government is “fully committed’’ to implementing the measures in the program and has taken a “very constructive” approach in talks, which in turn should lead to a successful negotiation. The head of the euro-area finance ministers said the goal is to reach an agreement at the next meeting scheduled May 24.
