#AceFinanceNews say that `Eurogroup’ says troika to return to Greece this week, as there has been no progress in discussions with `Greek‘ authorities.

A mission of international lenders will return to Greece later this week to review progress made in delivering on the country’s reforms, the chairman of euro-zone finance ministers, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, has said.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF), the European Commission and the European Central Bank interrupted a visit to Athens last year because there was no progress in discussions with Greek authorities.

This has held up disbursements of loans due since September 2013, Reuters said.

The main sticking point is how Athens would plug a gap in this year’s budget, estimated at 1 billion euro.
