Reaching a deal on Greece’s emergency financing will be possible at the technical level, but a political agreement with the country’s new leftist-led government will be “very difficult”, Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem said on Thursday as he left the EU Council meeting in Brussels.

“I am optimistic that we will have an outcome on the technical process because I think that is a matter of simply comparing different measures and content of the program,” Jeroen Dijsselbloem told reporters.

“I am very cautious on the political side. It is going to be very difficult. It is going to take time. Don’t get your hopes up yet,” he said.
