Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Prime Min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras and his coali­tion part­ner Evan­ge­los Venize­los dis­cussed pend­ing re­forms pledged to the troika over the weekend as it re­mained un­clear when for­eign in­spec­tors will re­turn to Athens.

Troika of­fi­cials are said to be frus­trated over a lack of re­form progress and may not re­turn next week, mean­ing de­ci­sions on the re­lease of fur­ther res­cue aid loans will be put back.

Ger­man Fi­nance Min­is­ter Wolf­gang Schaeu­ble said on Satur­day that Ber­lin could pro­vide more aid if nec­es­sary. “If Greece meets all its obli­ga­tions by the end of 2015, achiev­ing a pri­mary bud­get sur­plus, and still needs fi­nan­cial help, we would be will­ing to do some­thing,” he said.
