The EU's euro Commissioner Olli Rehn said on Monday it was “essential” that eurozone finance ministers and the IMF take a decision “today” on resuming long-stalled loans to Greece.

“It is essential to take a decision on the disbursement of the next tranche,” Rehn said on arrival for the third meeting in two weeks on the thorny issue. “Greece has delivered, now it's delivery time for the Eurogroup and the IMF,” he added. - Sapa-AFP
