If you ask Greek Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras, Athens on Wednesday was given an additional two years to reach its budgetary target of reducing new lending below the EU-mandated maximum of 3 percent. Instead of 2014, Greece would have a new deadline of 2016.

If you ask German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble and other major creditors, however, such a delay has in no way been finalized.
