BRUSSELS, June 18. /TASS/. An agreement between the Greek government and creditors is nowhere in sight so far, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the head of the eurozone's group of finance ministers said on Thursday.
He said with regret that progress at the talks between Athens and the creditors had not been sufficient, as the talks on untangling the Greek debt crisis had not moved a bit in the past few weeks, and the outline of a possible agreement could not be seen yet.
Dijsselbloem said the European negotiators had sent a clear signal to Greece on the importance of presenting a comprehensive list of reforms. If the parties to the talks fail to reach agreement by June 30, the program of macrofinancial aid to Greece that still has €7.2 billion of spare money will expire.
Dijsselbloem voiced the hope, however, that a compromise with Greece was still possible in the coming few days and he confirmed that consultations between the Greek government and the creditors would continue.
