BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Greece is confident of reaching a deal with European partners but will not extend the current bailout programme, a Greek official reiterated on Thursday after late-night talks in Brussels ended without agreement.
The official repeated that Greece was committed to reforms and would not seek further loans.
“We have covered a lot of ground,” the official told reporters. “But we don’t want to extend the current programme, we are looking for a new programme.”
Euro zone finance ministers are due to meet again on Monday to find a way forward to resolving Greece’s crisis.
