ATHENS Nov 29 Greece and its official creditors
can reach an initial agreement on reforms and fiscal targets to
pass a key bailout review by the end of the week and a final
deal to conclude it by the end of the year, the country's
government spokesman said on Tuesday.
Athens, however, cannot make further concessions on labour
reforms which go beyond European norms, government spokesman
Dimitris Tzanakopoulos told reporters.
Tzanakopoulos also said the IMF must realise that Greece
cannot accept austerity measures after 2018. Athens hopes for
inclusion in the European Central Bank's asset-purchasing
programme (QE) in the first quarter of 2017, he said.
