Today the Greek minister of Finance, the institutions (European Commission, ECB, ESM and IMF) and I had a constructive meeting on the state of play of the second review

There is a clear understanding that a timely finalisation of the second review is in everybody's interest

We made substantial progress today and are close to common ground for the mission to return to Athens the coming week

We will take stock of the further progress of the second review during the next Eurogroup.
