Greek government's discussions with the institutions involved in the Greek programme and its conclusion in August 2018 continue smoothly, stated government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos on Monday in his briefing to the press.

"We are leading towards a clean exit without precautionary support line" he said.

On the negotiations with FYROM, the government and the Foreign Minister continue their huge effort to reach a mutually accepted solution, Tzanakopoulos said noting that the Greek government has focused on two main issues. The compound name and the erga omnes, which require the amendment of the neighbouring country's constitution. "The solution must meet these two conditions in order to be viable and fair", he concluded.
