Greece is determined to reject the EU's latest proposals on a default-saving loan deal, two senior ministers said Sunday, ahead of a crucial week for the struggling nation's reform talks.The European Commission last week presented Greece with a five-page list of proposals, including sales tax hikes and cuts in civil servants' salaries and pensions.Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Friday blasted the proposals as "absurd" and insisted Athens would not accept a deal unless it included a restructuring of the country's massive debt.This means that Greece must now find 1.6 billion euros in three weeks -- funds it is unlikely to muster without a deal with its EU-IMF creditors.Greece's bailout agreement with the creditors expires at the end of June.
