BERLIN, June 14 Germany expects Greece and its
lenders to reach a compromise deal on new loans this week and
there is no guarantee Athens will get debt relief, a finance
ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.
"We expect that we will be able to agree on a sustainable
overall package," spokesman Juerg Weissgerber said at a regular
government news conference when asked about Thursday's meeting
of euro zone finance ministers.
Asked about debt relief measures for Greece, he said it
remained the German government's point of view that such
measures for Greece can only be decided on after the existing
third bailout ends in 2018.
