Greece may be discussed at meeting of BRICS finance ministers and heads of central banks

The Greek question may be discussed informally at the meeting of finance ministers and central banks of the BRICS countries, a source in the Russian delegation told TASS Tuesday.

"The situation in Greece will not be specifically discussed, but this issue will come up one way or another - it is inevitable. I think that, given the timeliness of the situation it will be mentioned in the speeches," the source said.

Today, July 7, the meeting of finance ministers and BRICS countries' central bank governors will be held in Moscow.

On July 5, a government-appointed referendum took place, at which the population was asked to speak "for" or "against" proposals of the EC, the IMF and the ECB on the settlement of the Greek debt problem.

The people were asked to decide whether the government should accept a draft deal presented by the "troika" at a meeting of the Eurogroup on June 25, 2015. The document of creditors consists of two parts - reforms to complete the current program and preliminary analysis of the debt's stability.

A total of 61.31% of Greeks spoke against the terms of agreement with creditors on Greece's debt - this is the final result of Sunday's referendum announced by the Interior Ministry after 100% of ballots have been processed.
