Greece starts new round of bailout talks with creditors

The Greek government enters a new round of talks with its creditors, skeptical about the depth and efficacy of its pension reform plans, facing protests over those plans from a broad spectrum of professions.

Talks with the quartet of creditors – the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the European Stability Mechanism and the International Monetary Fund – are scheduled to resume Monday.

The government says the first phase of the talks will last a week and, after a short break, will resume until the completion of the first assessment of Greece's third bailout deal, signed last August.

Labor strikes are scheduled through most of the week: transport workers on Tuesday, journalists on Wednesday, a general strike Thursday, and transport shipping crews Friday. Farmers continue intermittent blockades of roads across Greece.
