ATHENS – Greece’ new left-wing government says it will work with the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development to overhaul cost-cutting reforms imposed by bailout lenders.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras met OECD Secretary General Jose Angel Gurria in Athens and said a new government reform committee would work with the organization on a long-term basis.

The pledge on Feb. 11 came hours before an emergency meeting of Eurozone finance ministers in Brussels to discuss Tsipras’ demands to restructure bailout debts worth 240 billion euros ($270 billion).

Shares on the Athens Stock Exchange were 3 percent lower ahead of the talks.
