May 19 , 2015
Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has said that he expects to reach a debt agreement with international creditors, EU and IMF, within the next week.
The country is on the edge of bankruptcy and has to make a €1.5 billion payment to the IMF on June 5.
Denying reports that Greece might exit from the eurozone, Varoufakis said in a TV interview that the deal was “very close”. He said another currency was “not on the radar.”
