The President of France Emmanuel macron welcomed the decision of the Eurogroup to grant financial aid to Greece, noting, however, that this decision is not yet final.

The Eurogroup last Thursday gave a positive assessment of the second course of reforms in Greece and approved the allocation of tranche of 8.5 billion euros. The Finance Ministers of Eurozone countries agreed with the possibility of extending the repayment term loans.

«It is important to reach this agreement at this stage to provide the necessary funding to assist Greece in carrying out difficult reforms,» macron said on Friday at a press conference with the Prime Minister of Spain, Mariano Rajoy.
