The source said the share of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in that package will total €16 billion.
According to the source, the conditions for funds to be allocated will be clear and stage-by-stage implementation by Greece of the reform plan.
According to a a European diplomat, the conditions of the third assistance program for Greece will be tougher than those before the referendum on July 5, at which Greeks rejected proposals of the creditors by 61% of the votes.
