A deal to ease Greek debt has always been seen as a key ingredient in the country's successful return to economic health and foray back into financial markets.
The EU is stressing that Greece's debt problem, which triggered a credit crisis in the region, is over.
"It is a deal which reflects the moral duty of our partners in response to the sacrifices of Greek people over the past eight years, so that the euro zone remains undivided", Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said during a meeting here with President Prokopis Pavlopoulos to formally brief him on the outcome of Thursday's talks in Luxembourg.

The profits came from a range of deals - including the Securities Market Program (SMP), a now-defunct bond-buying program initiated by the European Central Bank in 2010 that Germany and other members of the eurozone backed to keep Greece's economy afloat, according to German Press Agency (DPA).

But IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the Fund maintained some reservations about it in the very long term, when assessed until 2060 and therefore welcomed the readiness of the euro zone to do more if an adverse economic scenario were to materialise over the coming decades.
The eurozone ministers' agreement comes almost a decade after Athens finances spun out of control, sparking three bailouts and threatening the country's euro membership.
