Greece debt crisis: Eurozone 'sceptical' of reform pledge
July 11, 2015 6:05 pm
Eurozone finance chiefs are seeking further signs from Greece that it is serious about delivering its promises of reform in return for a debt rescue.
Several ministers arrived for their crunch meeting in Brussels expressing scepticism that Athens would implement the austerity measures it has proposed.
The meeting later adjourned and will reconvene on Sunday morning.
Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem said negotiations were difficult but work was still in progress.
Earlier, Greece’s Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis told the BBC his government is “committed to moving forward”.
Greek MPs have voted in favour of the measures proposed by PM Alexis Tsipras – despite the fact that many of the ideas had been rejected by the Greek people in last Sunday’s referendum.
