SYRIZA says open to talks with all parties

Greece’s leftist SYRIZA party, which spurned an invitation for coalition talks with three other parties, said on Monday it would be willing to take part in a meeting that includes more groups.

“SYRIZA’s leader does not intend to participate in selective meetings with political leaders summoned by the Greek president,» the Left Coalition party said in a statement.

“However, he is at the president’s disposal to meet him either on an individual basis or meet with all parliamentary parties, with the exception of (far-right) Golden Dawn,» the statement said. [Reuters]
