Greece: Wrong Document Sent (By Mistake); A Comprehensive New Version for Detailed Study; "A Positive Step, If Numbers Add Up and Prior Actions Fully Implemented"

Fast FT report

"Three senior officials say there's been a mix-up with the documents sent to the bailout monitors.
'It's not so dramatic, but they sent the wrong one by mistake,' said one of the officials,write Anne-Sylvaine Chassany and Peter Spiegel.The officials said the Greeks intended to submit a new version this morning, but it remained unclear whether they had done so. Two officials said they received a revised version during the early morning hours on Monday, but the third official said they had not yet received the new version".

PM Tsipras Statement

Reuters Report - "Euro zone finance ministers welcomed new Greek proposals for a cash-for-reform deal on Monday but said they required detailed study and it would take several days to determine whether they can lead to an agreement to avert a default...Dijsselbloem described the Greek document as comprehensive and "a basis to really restart the talks" but said it remained to be seen whether the numbers added up to make Athens' public finances sustainable".

Guardian Eurocrisis Live

"The Eurogroup has now issued a brief statement, confirming what we learned earlier:

The Eurogroup broadly welcomed a new version of the reform plan submitted by the Greek authorities this morning, before the Eurogroup meeting, and considered it to be a positive step in the process.

The Eurogroup asked the institutions (the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund) to start analysing the new proposal and together with the Greek authorities work out a list of prior actions with a view to reaching a final agreement on the reform plan later this week. The Eurogroup might hold another meeting this week".

Kathimerini assessment - FM Varoufakis arrived 45 minutes late - Σύμφωνα με ευρωπαίο αξιωματούχο όλοι οι υπουργοί Οικονομικών βρίσκονταν στο τραπέζι του Eurogroup περιμένοντας τον Έλληνα υπουργό Γ. Βαρουφάκη, που μπήκε με 45’ καθυστέρηση. Μαζί του ήταν και ο επικεφαλής των διαπραγματεύσεων Ευ. Τσακαλώτος...το χρέος θα συζητηθεί «μετά την εφαρμογή ολόκληρου του προγράμματος». «Επειδή πολλά λέγονται για το χρέος είχαμε αποφασίσει τον Νοέμβριο του 2012 αν το πρόγραμμα εφαρμοστεί πλήρως και ολοκληρωθεί τότε θα μπορούσαμε να το εξετάσουμε. Αυτό δεν έχει αλλάξει αλλά πρέπει το πρόγραμμα να εφαρμόζεται κανονικά. Η απόφαση ισχύει.

Deutsche Welle report - Sobering end to first round of Greek summit - "Eleventh-hour talks between eurozone finance ministers have ended in a stalemate. Germany has tried to play down tensions by saying there is still time to reach a deal".
