Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has arranged to meet with the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels on Wednesday, a day ahead of the refugee summit.
During the meeting the Prime Minister will underline that reforms to be implemented in Greece must not cause any further “explosions”, in response to recent demand by the IMF’s Poul Thomsen for even more cuts.
With the European Commission and European Central Bank both stressing the need to complete the bailout review as soon as possible, the pension system reform – which is the greatest hurdle to overcome – will be at the forefront of Wednesday’s meeting, along with the return of the institutions to Athens, to complete the procedure.
