Greeks set for pressure

Germany wants the new Greek government to go back on promises to raise the minimum wage, halt unpopular sales of national assets, rehire fired public sector workers and reinstate a Christmas bonus for poor pensioners, a document prepared by Berlin officials for an EU meeting shows.

"The Eurogroup needs a clear and front-loaded commitment by Greece to ensure full implementation of key reform measures necessary to keep the programme on track," the document seen by Reuters said.
