Finance Minister Harris Georgiades expressed on Friday confidence that there will be a positive outcome concerning Greece at Monday`s Eurogroup.

Georgiades referred to the clarifications that were given by the Greek government, at the extraordinary Eurogroup meeting, on Wednesday in Brussels, noting that “these have been noted and could form the basis for an arrangement on Greece`s financing in the coming period.”

Georgiades referred in particular to Greek pledges to stay in the Euro, promote substantial reforms and retain a balanced state budget and a primary surplus.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras met with the Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades last week as part of an official visit to the island.
