A top EU official urged Greece on Thursday to step up efforts to come up with a list of reforms, saying that reaching a deal with its international lenders was possible but that work must be intensified in the coming days.
“I really like Greek tragedy but now we must move to the happy ending,” EU Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici told RTL radio.
Referring to a June 18 meeting of euro zone finance ministers, he said: “In the coming days we must really intensify talks and they must be productive.”
Moscovici said divergences remained, in particular on Greece’s primary surplus, but added: “We are close to the landing strip. There is political will, we can and must succeed.”
