EU creditors to start talks on possible debt relief for Greece



EU creditors have agreed to start talks on possible debt relief for Greece as the country prepares to leave an eight-year bailout programme.

 
Greece's public debt totals 180% of its economy and the talks will focus on how to link any relief to economic results.


The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has long been in favour of substantial debt relief but has faced opposition from countries like Germany.


The eurozone has also agreed in principle to pay out new loans.''
