(ANSAmed) - BERLIN, JUNE 18 - "No one is talking about the timeline for reform today,'' said German parliament Georg Streiter spokesman in correcting the interpretation of the statements made yesterday by Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, who said he "could imagine that there will be talk once again of a timeline.'' Streiter claims the words were "over-interpreted", also pointing out that "the last word on Athens belongs to the Troika." Streiter added that "after the formation of the government, the Troika will have to go back to Athens and verify that the reforms can indeed be put into practice." (ANSAmed).
