Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Friday there had been significant progress with lenders on a bailout review, and that he hoped for a comprehensive deal by April, Euronews reported.

Tsipras, speaking after a summit of EU leaders in Brussels, said he expected peace talks on ethnically-split Cyprus to remain stalled until after a Turkish referendum on April 16.

Creditors started fresh negotiations with Athens last week on signing off on a new bailout review under the terms of the country’s EUR 86 billion (USD 91 billion) financing facility.
