Greek bailout funds approved but debt relief still contentious


Greece has been granted access to fresh bailout funds after what proved a relatively smooth meeting of the Eurogroup on June 15, but parties still failed to agree on debt relief.

This allowed the European Stability Mechanism to approve €8.5 billion ($9.5 billion) in support to Greece, as European authorities had made such support conditional on IMF involvement.
