ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told his cabinet on Tuesday that the Eurogroup confirmed that Greece's key bailout review will be concluded without any further austerity measures, beyond what was agreed in August.

Tsipras also said that the meeting of euro zone finance ministers on Monday showed Greece is no longer isolated.

"Greece is not alone and isolated. It enjoys the support of political forces and governments which have finally realized that this country and its people have the right to turn a page," Tsipras told his ministers.
