Eurozone finance ministers approved Greece’s reform plan on Tuesday, paving the way for a four-month extension of the country’s financial rescue program.

Earlier on Tuesday, MEPs from the Economic Affairs Committee met eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem to discuss the current talks with the Greek government.

“This is just a first step. This list is not a new MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) or a new agreement. This list is just an indication of the kind of reforms that they would like to push or like to replace and also the ones that they would like to continue. It’s going to take time to get into the details and to design a new contract or agreement which will carry us on for 4 months,” Dijsselbloem said.
