EU and IMF inspectors will resume their inspection of Greece's finances on Sept 14, Financ e Minister Evangelos Venizelos said on Friday, after talks with the

lenders were unexpectedly put on hold.

Yesterday night it was decided to conclude the first cycle of talks and a second cycle will begin in about 10 days on September 14, Venizelos told a news conference, adding that the 10 days were necessary to study economic data at a technical level.

He said the talks were not suspended and added that Greece was determined to complete structural reforms required by its lenders.
