Greek FinMin says no problems in privatization talks

Greece said on Tuesday there were no significant disagreements with lenders on privatization discussions, with its finance minister saying talks were going better than expected.

“We have submitted a proposal to them,” Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos told reporters during a break in discussions with lenders. “They said they would examine it and come back to us.”

“There were small divergences in views. I don't think there will be a problem. Discussions have gone better than I expected,” he said.

Tsakalotos said differences hinged on the administration and control of a new transformed privatization agency.
