BRUSSELS (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Friday that pension reforms remain a major sticking point in talks with Greece, which needs to pass the unpopular plans as part of a multi-billion euro bailout deal with international creditors.

"A particularly difficult point remains the pension reforms," Schaeuble said in Brussels after a meeting of euro zone finance ministers. "The system of old age provision must be made sustainable."
