    [02] Moscovici: Significant progress in the negotiations over the last weeks

    "Significant progress has been made in the negotiations over the last weeks," European Commissioner for Economic Affairs Pierre Moscovici said in statements to French radio station RTL, on the negotiations between Athens and its creditors.

    "I really like the Greek ancient drama, but I think this time we need a happy end", he said.

    "If there is political will, we can and will have an outcome," he added. But "we are not yet at this point."

    The negotiations held in recent weeks "allowed to have an important bridging of views. There are still gaps, particularly in what we call primary surpluses, the budget surpluses that Greece must achieve," explained the Commissioner.

    "We really need to reach a stable agreement so that all these are economically viable" for Greece, for creditors and "for taxpayers who will ultimately bear the cost in case of non-payment of the Greek debt," he added.
