Draft document shows Greece accepting demands it previously rejected

The Greek government appears to have accepted a raft of demands from European creditors that it had previously condemned.
    
Among a series of proposals that made it into a draft document sent to eurozone leaders, Greece has accepted that officials from the creditor institutions will have some sort of base in Athens.
    
It remained unclear whether that ability "to work on the ground" will be similar to the hands-on oversight the country underwent after the country's initial bailout in 2010. Many in Greece hated what they considered foreign meddling in their affairs.
    
Elsewhere in the eurogroup document obtained by The Associated Press, Greece agreed to carry out "ambitious" pension and market reforms, and "significantly" scale up its privatization program.
    
According to the document, the Greek government has agreed to legislate a first set of measures by Wednesday.
