Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has indicated that an interim agreement with the EU and international creditors over the debt crisis would be reached by May 9.
He said that Greece was now in the critical and final round of talks with creditors and the objective was to reach a deal this week or next week.
Tsipras, who heads a left-wing government, also defended Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, who has been replaced by Euclid Tsakalotos to lead Greece's difficult negotiations.
