PARIS (Reuters) – French Finance Minister Michel Sapin reaffirmed Paris' view on Friday that Greece needs debt relief to allow it to obtain its economy back on its feet.
Sapin told Europe 1 radio that relief could involve measures such as an extension of maturities, lengthening of the grace period on repayment, or easing of interest rates.
He ruled out any write-off of Greek loans, saying that as a creditor, France wanted to ensure it received its money back.
