Greek finance minister says eyeing new debt deal by 'end May'

AFP , Sunday 1 Feb 2015

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis on Sunday said he wanted to see a global agreement on his heavily indebted country's financial situation "by the end of May".

Between now and then, Greece was "not going to ask for any new loans", he told reporters in Paris, the minister's first stop on a European charm offensive that follows the anti-austerity Syriza party's victory in elections a week ago.
