Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos said Friday he believed "many" of his country's demands for debt relief will be accepted by eurozone partners, which are weighing a bailout proposal.
"Many of Greece's debt demands are going to be accepted," he told a parliamentary commission examining the plan.
He notably expressed confidence that Greece will be permitted to roll over a debt of 27 billion euros ($30 billion) in bonds held by the European Central Bank to the European Stability Mechanism, which would push back repayments.
