BRUSSELS, March 15 (Reuters) - The following are comments by euro zone finance ministers and other officials ahead of their meeting in Brussels on Monday.

EU ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL AFFAIRS COMMISSIONER OLLI REHN

I would expect that Europe would endorse the assessment of the Commission on Greece's bold set of measures which would mean that Greece is on track to meet the 4 percent target of deficit reduction this year.

We will also discuss how to safeguard financial stability in the euro area as a whole.

The Commission is ready to table a proposal for a European framework for coordinated and conditional assistance.
