Greece faces 'major issue of trust'

July 11, 2015 7:20 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.

Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem spoke of a “major issue of trust”.

But 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.
