Greece and the troika of its international lenders will not reach a deal on austerity measures, part of the country's bailout, before a meeting of euro zone finance ministers on Monday, a Greek official said on Saturday.

"We do not expect to have agreed on something before the eurogroup meeting," a senior finance ministry official who declined to be named told Reuters.
