The leaders held an exchange of views on Greece and clarified the positions and the situation in the ongoing talks between the Greek authorities and the institutions (the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund).
The President of the Euro Summit Donald Tusk said the latest proposals for the reforms plan by the Greek authorities are a positive step forward, but noted that the proposals require further assessment by the institutions.
Greece is expected to submit a comprehensive reforms plan to unlock further disbursement of financial assistance according to the agreement of 20 February 2015. It presented its latest proposal on 22 June 2015.
"Work now must proceed swiftly in the Eurogroup. Prime Minister Tsipras and the institutions will work together now, so that the Eurogroup can achieve result on Wednesday evening, which can be presented on Thursday morning", said President Tusk.
