Energy Minister Giorgos Stathakis said on Friday that after the eurogroup's decisions Greece will be able to tap debt markets in a move that may take place after August.

In comments to SKAI TV, Stathakis said the decisions were very close to positions held by Greece that were: securing a ten year grace period and a ten year extension on loans, the creation of 'cushion' of ten billion euros, getting about 10-11 billion euros to repay loans owed to the International Monetary Fund that will expire soon and are expensive.

"Yesterday's decision by the eurogroup is very close to our expectations as three of our demands were met and on the IMF 5.5 billion euros was given from the new loans and the return of profits from the banks. The final 'cushion', along with what we had, will be around 24 billion euros," said the minister.
