• Greek PM seeks EU help to break creditor deadlock


    ATHENS: Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday sought help from the European Union to break a deadlock in critical debt talks, as his spokeswoman accused the IMF of “undermining” the process. Tsipras’ office said the leftist Premier had asked EU President Donald Tusk to call a summit to help facilitate negotiations with the debt-ridden country’s creditors. The move came after an expected Eurogroup meeting on Thursday was postponed, scuppering Greek hopes of an agreement by Sunday to launch talks on debt relief. Tusk said he had urged eurozone finance ministers to meet “within days,” warning that failure to act could bring a repeat of last summer’s drama that nearly saw Greece crash out of the eurozone.
