European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso has urged Greece’s new government to deliver on promises of cost-cutting reforms.

The country is depending on the reforms for continued financial support from the Eurozone. Barroso made the comments at a joint news conference with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras after the two met on Thursday.

Jose Manuel Barroso said, "The main issue is implementation to deliver results. To maintain the trust of European and international partners, the delays must end. Words are not enough. Actions are much more important. Following my meeting with Prime Minister Samaras, I’m reassured that this delivery will happen. In return I have been unequivocal that the European Commission will stand by Greece."
