The Ministry of Finance has argued that there will be no delays in the payment of the 2.8 billion tranche, in response to an article published by Bloomberg.

Associates of Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos told the Athens-Macedonia News Agency that even if there is a delay, it will be of a technical matter and no longer than 24 to 48 hours.

According to the Bloomberg article, the Greek Minister commented that “if there is a delay, it’ll be days not weeksahead of his meeting with European Commissioner Pierre Moscovici and added that “part of the reason for the meeting is to discuss the process to ensure there aren’t delays”.
