If approved, they will unlock an additional financial aid in the amount of EUR 7,2 B. It is set on helping the country to repay the upcoming installment to the IMF that needs to be submitted until end June.

European Commissioner for the Euro and Social Dialogue Valdis Dombrovskis stated that an agreement could be achieved over the next several days. He also, however, urged Greece to demonstrate a little less ''technical manoeuvres'' and more work.
