EC Commissioner's spokesman: No change in financing of Greece
European Commissioner for Economic Affairs Oli Rehn's spokesman Simon O'Connor reiterated on Wednesday a former Eurogroup decision according to which if Greece presents a primary surplus at the end of 2013 then the eurozone could examine the possibility of additional measures to further safeguard the debt's sustainability.
Specifically, replying to a press question on the sustainability of the Greek programme and the possibility of an additional financing, O'Connor noted that the European Committee's responsibility is to promote the implementation of the Greek fiscal programme, noting that its financing issues have been clarified by the Eurogroup's decision on November 27.
However, he said, "we are not there yet and I can't read the crystal ball to see what will happen in the future".
