    Greek leaders says country is close to deal with creditors as both sides prepare to meet

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- Greece's prime minister said Wednesday that his country is close to reaching a deal with its bailout creditors, prompting European stock markets to jump on hopes of a breakthrough in the slow-moving, often acrimonious talks.

    Alexis Tsipras spoke shortly before Greek negotiators were due to meet in Brussels with representatives of the bailout creditors — whose cash has kept Greece from bankruptcy for the past five years.

    "We have taken very many steps. We are in the home stretch, close to the final agreement," Tsipras told reporters, after a meeting at the finance ministry in Athens.

    Greek stocks rallied earlier Wednesday after government officials said negotiators will start drafting a staff-level agreement with bailout creditors in Brussels to unlock aid that would allow the country to make a debt repayment as soon as next week.

  • Colombia's FARC guerrillas said Wednesday that a member of their delegation at peace talks with the government was among the 27 rebels killed last week in an air strike.

    FARC commander Pastor Alape said his comrade in arms Jairo Martinez was "among the guerrillas murdered" in the strike Thursday on the western rebel stronghold of Cauca, which has threatened to derail the peace process aimed at ending the five-decade conflict.

    Alape also confirmed that rebel commander Roman Ruiz, a member of the FARC's high command, was killed Sunday in another strike in the northwestern department of Choco.

    The two rebel commanders' deaths will amplify the tensions that have beset the peace talks in Havana since the FARC killed 11 soldiers last month in an ambush in Cauca.

    The attack came amid a unilateral ceasefire declared by the FARC, and caused a furious President Juan Manuel Santos to order the resumption of air strikes on the guerrillas.

    In all, some 40 FARC fighters have been killed in three

  • DP World warns over Melbourne port rent increase

    DP World has become embroiled in a bitter row with an Australian state government over a proposed sevenfold rental increase at Melbourne port, which Dubai's ports operator warns would decimate its business.

    The Dubai government-owned company, which is the biggest of three stevedores working at the port, said on Wednesday a 767 per cent increase in rent proposed by the government of Victoria risks damaging the competitiveness of the port and its customers. It warned the proposal could also undermine the government's part privatisation of Melbourne port, which is expected to raise up to A$6bn (US$4.6bn).

    "This will cost us up to 300 jobs, it will cost thousands of jobs in the supply chain," said Paul Scurrah, managing director and chief executive of DP World Australia. "For a government elected on a jobs platform something just doesn't feel right about that."

    The row at Melbourne is the latest challenge facing DP World, one of the world's largest port operators.
