French President Francois Hollande and Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos met in Paris for talks on Europe, Greece’s Financial Situation and the Refugee Crisis. Heavily indebted Greece, which is on its third International bailout since an economic crisis began in 2010, is at odds with lenders over fiscal targets and the scope of reforms required to conclude its latest review on bailout progress. Hollande said Greece had met its commitments in tackling the crisis, meaning that Europe also had to stand by its promises. Greece, which was last week granted short-term debt relief by its euro zone partners, hopes that a deal with its lenders could allow its inclusion in the European Central Bank’s asset purchase program by the spring of 2017.
