BRUSSELS (AP) -- A person close to Greece's international debt inspectors is denying that the country's politicians have been given an extra 15 days to agree to a €300 million cut in pensions.
Greek party leaders earlier Thursday failed to agree on the cuts in all-night talks. A Greek parliamentarian claimed later that the politicians had been given 15 days to find an alternative way to save this amount.
But a person close to the so-called troika said that claim was "not correct."
He said instead the country has to agree €325 million in savings on top of the €300 million in pension cuts and that it has been given 3 weeks to identify how to do that.
The person was speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the talks.
The cuts are key conditions for a second, €130 billion bailout for Greece.
