Greek parliament vote satisfies bailout deal terms: EU

AFP , Thursday 16 Jul 2015

A Greek parliament vote satisfies the initial terms of a reforms-for-bailout deal between Greece and its EU creditors agreed at a 17-hour summit earlier this week, an EU spokeswoman said Thursday.

"The authorities have legally implemented the first set of four measures agreed at the eurosummit in a timely and overall satisfactory manner," spokeswoman Annika Breidthardt told reporters.

The Greek parliament overnight Wednesday adopted the set of reforms after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras urged them to back the unpopular measures.
