The #eurozone finance ministers are gathering in Brussels for a meeting a major issue of which will be #Greece. However, fears are growing that a decision on the issue whether Greece should be given the next tranche of over 31 bn euros under its adjustment programme will not be taken today because the debt sustainability report of the Troika is not ready yet. Entering the Council building in Brussels, Finland's Finance Minister Jutta Urpilainen did not exclude the possibility the Eurogroup to meet again this week. This is necessary also because the deadline for Greece to pay 5 bn euros of debt expires on Friday.

"My attitude and the attitude of the French government is positive and constructive", Mr Moscovici concluded.
