Greece won't accept any deal concerning existing bailout at Eurogroup
[ATHENS] Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis will not accept any deal at next week's Eurogroup meeting that keeps the current international bailout programme in place, a Greek government official said on Friday.
The official, who asked not to be named, said that Greece would ask for a "bridge agreement" until Athens was able to present a new debt and reform programme.
"We will not accept any deal which is not related to a new programme," the official said, adding that Greece expected a tough stance from its eurozone partners at the meeting.
