European finance ministers have “good” chances of clinching a deal on Greece’s financing and are determined to keep the International Monetary Fund involved in the program, Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker said.
“There are good chances that we will come to a conclusive mutual solution, but I can’t be entirely sure,” Juncker told reporters before chairing a meeting of euro-area finance ministers in Brussels today. “It’s clear that Greece has delivered.”
