Eurozone finance chiefs handed Greece the prospect of talks on debt relief as soon as its bailout review wraps up, while renewing their call on Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s government to act on pensions, privatization and the budget, Bloomberg reported. “The moment’s now coming very close,” Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who is also Dutch finance minister, told reporters after chairing a meeting of his fellow eurozone counterparts on Monday in Brussels. He stopped short of predicting a firm timetable for negotiations, while suggesting talks could make progress before Greek Orthodox Easter on May 1.
