Greek leader meets eurozone creditors – but as expected, no deal yet


Alexis Tsipras, Greece's radical prime minister, met with his eurozone creditors in Brussels on Wednesday evening over the terms of his country remaining in the single currency, as the five-year crisis centred on debt and democracy moved towards a climax.

Tsipras joined the president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, for dinner and a battle of wills over conflicting ideas for resolving Greece's financial catastrophe, although many believe the best they are likely to agree is a fix to buy more time.

Although the meeting went well, it ended without a deal. However, there were positive expressions from participants afterwards and Jeroen Dijsselbloem, president of the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers, said that there was more to come.
