Euro Working Group President Wieser to visit Athens on Monday

ATHENS (Reuters) - Thomas Wieser, the president of the Euro Working Group which prepares decisions at meetings of the euro zone’s finance ministers, will be in Athens on Monday, a Greek government official said.

Greece is seeking to strike a new deal with its creditors as it rolls back austerity measures imposed as part of a 240 billion ($270 billion) euro bailout and hopes to write off a chunk of its debt.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras ruled out any extension of the country’s international bailout on Sunday and promised to reverse a range of reforms imposed by European and International Monetary Fund lenders.
