Slovak FinMin on Greece: Improvement in process but not substance

Athens’ eurozone partners have seen an improvement in process but not in substance of what Greece is proposing to resolve its debt crisis, Slovak Finance Minister Peter Kazimir said on his Twitter account ahead of eurozone finance ministers meeting in Brussels on Monday.

Greece wants the ministers to acknowledge there is progress in its talks with international lenders and is not looking into any “plan B.”

“There is still a large gap between Greece discussions in Brussels and actions in Athens,” Kazimir said.

“We have seen significant improvement on process since [previous meeting in] Riga, but still no improvement on substance on our radar,” he said. [Reuters]
