Greece's parliament on Saturday approved a tough budget for next year, including further spending cuts of 3.1 billion euros ($4.2 billion), aimed at ending the country's deep recession. The coalition government, which enjoys a narrow majority in the 300-seat chamber, managed to push the budget through as Greece's troika of international creditors -- the EU, the European Central Bank and the IMF -- announced they will postpone till January a planned trip, effectively suspending the handover of a billion-euro tranche of loan money.
