The 17-hour negotiations between the Greek economic staff and the representatives of the institutions were concluded at 5 pm on Monday without an agreement. Disagreements remain over the bad loans and the protection of first residence from foreclosures.
A senior Finance ministry official said that convergence has been achieved on many issues, but there is still disagreement over the criteria for the protection of first residence.
