Greece hopes to conclude negotiations with international creditors by early Tuesday at the latest, a Greek official said as talks continued in Athens on a new multi-billion euro bailout.But Germany is making new demands, saying now that Greek has to take new measures on refugees before they get the help.

Greece's finance and economy ministers were locked in negotiations with representatives of creditors on Sunday. Greek officials have previously said they expect the bailout accord to go to the country's parliament for approval by Aug. 18.
It can by no means be assumed that Germany is now negotiating in good faith.
Greece is working against an August 20 date for a significant payment to the ECB.
