Merkel told reporters in Athens that the troika report was "taking longer than was originally thought."
"But it’s better to deal with problems in detail that to try and address them quickly," she said.
A senior Greek government official said rescue creditors had given the country a list of around 90 structural reforms to be approved immediately so that the vital next loan installment could be paid sometime next month.
The official asked not to be named, since talks between Merkel and Samaras were ongoing.
