Greece eyes agreement on debt after Eurogroup teleconference

Greek Finance Ministry sources have suggested that talks between eurozone finance ministers during a teleconference on Saturday went smoothly and a number of technical issues were discussed before the Eurogroup convenes in Brussels on Monday.

There was no official statement after Saturday’s teleconference, which lasted about three hours.

Finance Ministry sources in Athens denied there was any disagreements between ministers and insisted that discussions were on track for Monday’s meeting.

“God forbid that we should not be close to an agreement for Monday,” a senior Finance Ministry source said, according to Skai TV.

Some reports said that sources in Brussels suggested that a final decision might not be reached and that finance ministers might have to postpone an agreement until a regular Eurogroup meeting on December 3.
