Greece Says Main Target to Regain Market Access

Greece must implement its international bailout program to achieve its main aim of regaining access to market financing and ending intrusive external supervision, re-elected leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Saturday.
Speaking to lawmakers of his Syriza party on the day a new parliament was sworn in, the premier said he aimed to complete the first review of a 86 billion euro bailout agreed in August as soon as possible so Athens could open negotiations with its euro zone partners on debt relief, Reuters reported.
"Implementing the bailout is not going to be easy. But we are obliged to make these decisions although we don't like them. It's necessary, in order to exit this system of surveillance and immediately start the discussion on the debt issue," he said.
"Our main target is to exit this system of supervision, and regain market access. But a necessary condition for that is to return to growth," Tsipras added.
