Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos on Tuesday called the leader of the opposition Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) party George Karatzaferis on the telephone and briefed him on the decisions taken at the latest Eurogroup council held in Luxembourg on Sunday.
According to sources, Venizelos stressed that Parliament must approve the Medium Term Fiscal Strategy and a law executing this by June 30 at the latest. Karatzaferis agreed with this position, noting that it was necessary for the release of the 5th tranche of EU-IMF bailout loans to Greece.
