Greece government gets closer to settle debt deal with European Union
Since then the Greek people have been unhappy with the Greek government's belt tightening policies called Austerity. Greeks believe that the Austerity is too harsh and tough to do. The Austerity program has been slow but it has helped to reduce debt. However, in the recent elections Greek people voted in a new party which vowed to go back on the Austerity commitments made by the previous Greek government.
Now the new Greek government wants to renegotiate the payment terms of the European Union (EU) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved bailoutworth 240 Billion Euros. The Greeks want more liberal and delayed timeline for re-payment than what is on the agreement. The interest on the bail-out funds is due in a month. If Greece does not pay the interest it will default on the EU/IMF loans which will send Greece into yet another economic and debt crisis.
The EU wants to hold Greece accountable by making it live within means and get their act together by reducing growing debt which was the whole reason for the debt crisis. After back-and-forth it appears that the EU and the Greek government may be coming to a mutual understanding on how the bailout monies will be paid back to the EU and how Greece will tackle its debt problem.
