Greece: New Bailout Talks to Start after Bank Laws Passed

Greece: New Bailout Talks to Start after Bank Laws Passed

Tuesday, 21 July 2015 09:51 AM

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's government spokeswoman says talks with the country's creditors for a new multibillion-euro rescue package will begin right after parliament approves laws on propping up and winding up banks.

Olga Gerovasili said in a statement Tuesday that the vote on the bank laws will take place Wednesday. She said negotiations on the new bailout will conclude on Aug. 20.

Gerovasili said Greece already met other conditions outlined by creditors for bailout talks to begin when lawmakers voted through package of measures including wide-ranging sales tax hikes.

She said a vote on pension reform has been pushed back with the creditors' consent and insisted that there won't be any vote on changing how farmers are taxed.
