"I believe that the ultimate details of a deal with the troika will be finalised by Monday night," Mr Christos Staikouras said after a meeting with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and the ruling coalition's party leaders.

An inspection team of international lenders has finished its review of Greece's reform progress, paving the way for the release of more bailout aid, a source with knowledge of the talks told Reuters on Saturday.
