European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker believes an agreement on a third bailout for Greece is likely this month, hopefully by August 20 when Athens must make a key debt repayment. "All the reports I am getting suggest an accord this month, preferably before the 20th," when Greece must repay some 3.4 billion euros ($3.7 billion) due to the European Central Bank, Juncker told AFP in an interview on Wednesday. Officials from the Commission, the ECB, the EU's bailout fund and the International Monetary Fund are currently in Athens working out the details of the new rescue worth up to 86 billion euros.
