Greece reached a 30-billion-euro (38.9 billion dollars) target in a bond buyback scheme from private investors, state television NET reported on Tuesday.

Eurozone finance ministers are set to discuss the outcome of the debt buy-back operation during a special meeting on Thursday.

They are also scheduled to hold a conference call on Tuesday afternoon to immediately “take stock of the outcome of the operation,” European Commission spokesman Simon O'Connor said. - Sapa-dpa
