Adelina Marini #ECON We're moving away a little from the crisis mode talk toward a more structured dialogue, said Mr Dijsselbloem at the beginning of the hearing
5 September 2013 09:11
Adelina Marini #ECON Dijsselbloem is making a review of the country-specific recommendations of the European Commission to the member states and particularly those in the euro area. He committed that he'll do his best those recommendations to be taken into account
5 September 2013 09:15
Adelina Marini #ECON Dijsselbloem was open in saying that the discussions of the banks resolution mechanism will be "challenging". He, however, said it would be important to conclude an agreement as soon as possible
5 September 2013 09:20
Adelina Marini #ECON On #Greece Dijsselbloem said it was realistic to assume that Greece will need additional assistance beyond the current programme
5 September 2013 09:21
Adelina Marini #ECON The review of #Greece's debt sustainability will be in April and at this stage speculations are not helpful, added the Eurogroup chief
5 September 2013 09:23
Adelina Marini #ECON @J_Dijsselbloem described hypothetically the procedure for recapitalisation of banks for which the independent quality asset review establishes they need help. He said that direct recapitalisation from the ESM will be the very last option after all others have failed - turning for funds to the capital markets, bail-in, national resolution funds and possibly even some national recapitalisation programmes
5 September 2013 09:36
Adelina Marini #ECON Given the fact that many countries are exiting recession now shows that the applied measures weren't wrong. Probably it is not about bad recommendations, but about not quality implementation, Dijsselbloem said responding to a questionof Portuguese MEP Elisa Ferreira from the S&D group
5 September 2013 09:40
Adelina Marini #ECON On the occasion of the conflict between the Commission and #France with regard to the country-specific recommendations, Dijsselbloem underscored that after all it is the member states that decide how to address the pointed by the EC problem. And that's the way it has to be, he pointed out
5 September 2013 09:44
Adelina Marini #Eurogroup Responding to a question by Dutch MEP from @ecrgroup Peter Van Dalen, Dijsselbloem specified that he never mentioned that #Greece would need a third programme, but only that after the current programme expired (in the end of 2014), Greece would need additional assistance
5 September 2013 09:51
Adelina Marini #Eurogroup With regard to #Greece again, Dijsselbloem specified that the implementation of the programme was broadly on track in terms of budget and deficit, but in terms of structural reforms, he admitted, their passing was difficult
5 September 2013 10:02
Adelina Marini #Eurogroup Herman Van Rompuy's road map for the future of the #EMU is still on the table, Jeroen Dijsselbloem said. He, however, refused to go into any details, especially in terms of the contracts envisaged on the map (a substitution of the bailout programmes)

#EUCO The leaders of the member states are gathering today in Brussels for the spring European Council. They have quite a lot of issues on their plates. One of the most sensitive topics will be the EU's answer to the #Salisbury attack. Some member states, including European Council President Donald Tusk, want a stronger reaction against Russia whereas others are more cautious. In the context of Syria, the leaders will discuss relations with Turkey. A decision is expected on whether the EU-Turkey summit in Varna is to take place. Another tough topic is what answer the EU should plan to the US tariffs on steel and aluminium. As the tradition goes, the spring European Council is the time to check the European semester. In addition, there will be a summit of the euro area but this time it will not be open for non-euro countries. The leaders will also discuss yesterday's proposal by the Commission to tax the digital economy. The summit is also expected to adopt conclusions on the Western Balkans on the occasion of the May summit with the six countries. On the menu is also the issue of Brexit. After a transitional agreement has been agreed the leaders now have to outline the guidelines for the future relations with the UK
