ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece believes a crucial bailout review conclusion is very likely on Feb. 20 if all sides show a constructive stance with Athens aiming for a deal that will not include more austerity, the country’s government spokesman said on Tuesday.

“The deal we are negotiating does not include even one euro of extra austerity,” Dimitris Tzanakopoulos told reporters.
