Greece will offset any reforms post-2019 with relief measures - government official

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Greece will take relief measures in exchange for further reforms legislated for after 2019, a Greek government official said on Monday after Athens and its lenders reached a deal to resume negotiations over its bailout review.

"For whatever measures we pre-legislate, we will at the same time legislate offsetting measures which will not add even half a euro of austerity," the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
