Greece, Creditors Fail to Agree

Greek officials and representatives of the country’s bailout creditors will have another go at overcoming disagreements on austerity measures, after all-night talks failed to produce a breakthrough, AP reported. Greece had been hoping to wrap up the talks with its European creditors and the International Monetary Fund over the weekend. But a series of marathon meetings—including a 10-hour session that ended Monday morning—proved fruitless. The main sticking points are a demanded overhaul of Greece’s tottering pension system, where the left-led government insists it will not cut current pensions, tax reforms and protection for people who can’t repay bank loans.
