Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday Athens wanted a speedy conclusion to a now-stalled review of bailout reforms, warning delays could hinder economic recovery after years of recession.
Athens’s European lenders last week suspended short term debt relief for the nation after Tsipras’s leftist administration granted a one-off Christmas bonus to pensioners without consulting creditors.
Greece is following reforms outlined in a bailout program worth up to 86 billion euros. It is its third since 2010, and regular reviews of reforms and approval by lenders are vital for Athens to continue receiving tranches of financial aid.
