Greece aid assured if EU/IMF satisfied-Juncker spokesman

BRUSSELS, May 26 (Reuters) - There will be no problem with paying out the next tranche of aid for Greece if the EU/IMF mission now in Athens is convinced new Greek measures will bring the country back on track, the spokesman for the chairman for euro zone finance ministers said.

“For now there can be no talk of the EU taking over the IMF part of the tranche to Greece,” said Guy Schuller, the spokesman for Luxembourg Prime Minister and Eurogroup chairman Jean-Claude Juncker.

“If EU/IMF mission in Athens is convinced by the new Greek measures, that they will bring Greece back on the agreed track of the EU/IMF programme, there will be no problem with paying out the tranche of aid in June or later by both the EU and the IMF,” Schuller said.
