Technical teams resume talks, focus on state budget

The technical experts of the government and the creditors resumed their talks in Athens on Monday after the process was halted last Tuesday.

Some of the technocrats had even left Greece and returned to the capital yesterday. Talks are centering on the course of the 2015 state budget.

In the coming days talks will touch on reforms, too, and a Brussels Group or a Euro Working Group meeting is possible soon, leading up to an extraordinary Eurogroup meeting of eurozone finance ministers on Friday or next Monday to examine the Greek proposals and possibly approve the disbursement of some funds.
