French Finance Minister Michel Sapin said a meeting of his eurozone peers Friday had to make up its mind about approving a third debt bailout for Greece.
"If there is a need for details to be clarified, if we need to discuss the process, then let us discuss that but we are here today above all to decide on implementing the third programme," Sapin said as he arrived for the Eurogroup meeting in Brussels of all 19 eurozone finance ministers.
Germany, which has reservations about okaying the debt accord, has championed just giving Greece a bridging loan to allow it to repay debt due on August 20 to the European Central Bank.
