ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece expects debt-relief talks with its creditors to start as soon as the first assessment of compliance with its bailout agreement has taken place, the finance ministry in Athens said on Saturday.

Greece's caretaker government is fulfilling its responsibilities in connection with the agreement, the ministry said in a statement.

The statement coincided with a meeting of European Union finance ministers in Luxembourg.
