EU Commissioner urges lenders to unblock new loans for Greece

BRUSSELS, June 8 (Reuters) - Time has come for European lenders to provide Greece with new loans, a vice-president of the European Commission said on Thursday, a week before euro zone finance ministers meet to unblock financial aid for Athens.

“It’s time to move with the next disbursement,” Valdis Dombrovskis told a news conference in Brussels, stressing that Greece had already met its fiscal and reform obligations for teh funds to be disbursed.
