BRUSSELS (July 7): The eurozone agreed today new debt relief measures for Greece worth about €750 million (US$840 million or RM3.62 billion) as part of the country's post-bailout programme.

The money comes from profits made by eurozone central banks on Greek government bonds and the reduction to zero of the step-up interest margin for certain eurozone loans to Athens this year, said the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), the bloc's rescue fund.
