Troika hails significant progress, confirms that “a few issues remain outstanding”

A day after Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and representatives of the country’s foreign lenders failed to reach a final agreement on a range of structural reforms, the so-called troika on Thursay confirmed that several issues “remain outstanding.”

“Significant progress has been made but a few issues remain outstanding,” said a statement issued by the European Commission, the ECB and the IMF.

“As additional technical work will be necessary to settle these issues, the mission will take a short break to allow this work to be completed,” it said.

The troika said the mission plans to return to Athens in early April to continue its work.
