Dijsselbloem welcomes SLA agreement


Outgoing Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem has welcomed a staff-level agreement (SLA) between Greece’s government and representatives of the country’s creditor institutions reached on Saturday.

“It was quite exceptional,” that the agreement was reached in time, said Dijsselbloem in Brussels ahead of his last eurogroup meeting. “Today we will discuss the following steps,” he added.
