The government official who declined to be named denied this. Asked whether the parties had to respond to the Euro Working Group of finance ministry officials by Monday, he said: «No, there is no deadline." He said, however, that the entire Greek side had to agree terms with the international lenders before the Eurogroup of euro zone finance ministers next meets.
"The only deadline is to have a staff agreement for the second bailout and the agreement of the political leaders before Eurogroup,» he said. No date has yet been set for the Eurogroup meeting, although it is expected this week. [Reuters]
