Negotiations between the Greek government and the country’s EU creditors on a third bailout have been delayed, the BBC reported on Friday.

The talks on a new EUR 86 B between Greece and top officials from the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the European Stability Mechanism were expected to start in Athens on Friday.

A European Commission spokeswoman said that the European representatives would arrive "in the coming days", according to the BBC.

Reuters quoted a European Commission official as saying that there were “some logistical issues to solve, notably security-wise."

"Several options are on the table," the official said, without giving more details.
