Finance Minister Tsakalotos: The IMF has changed its stance

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has changed its stance regarding the Greek banks and does not insist on a new quality control for their assets, said Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos talking on ANT1 channel. The Minister stated that the stress tests will be conducted next year in all European banks, as planned, but their results will be announced earlier and before the end of Greece's bailout program in the summer of 2018.
