Speaking ahead of today’s Eurogroup meeting, S&D Group President Gianni Pittella said:
 
“The Greek people and Greek government fulfilled their commitments by adopting a fundamental package of measures on Sunday, despite the difficult economic and social situation in the country.”
 
“The S&D Group calls for a positive decision from the Eurogroup to both unlock the next tranche of bailout funds and to set out concrete measures on debt relief. It is high time for the Eurogroup to recognise that this is common sense and the only practical way forward.
 
“Our Group has always held a very constructive position for the sake of Greece and the Greek people. We will never allow saboteurs and austerity hawks to reach their narrow-minded and short-sighted goals.”
