EU Commission says Greece should deliver on promised pension cuts

BRUSSELS, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Greece should deliver on the promises it had made to its international lenders under its bailout, the European Commission said on Friday when asked whether Greece was free to forego a planned pensions cut in 2019.

“Pacta sunt servanda,” Commission spokesman Alexander Winterstein told a regular news briefing when asked about Greek plans not to introduce a pension cut agreed with lenders in 2017, using a Latin proverb which means “agreements must be kept”.
