The Greek prime minister says Greece will run out of money by the end of next month if it does not receive the next installment of its bail-out loan.
Officials from the troika of the European Commission, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank are in the country, assessing Greece’s progress in fulfilling the terms for receiving the aid. The government is reportedly near a deal on a package of austerity measures.
Protests against the cuts continue – this time by farmers on the island of Crete who drove their tractors in front of the airport.
Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said further cuts demanded by the troika would be very difficult, saying the country was “already bleeding”.
