Hollande calls for ‘global and lasting accord’ with Greece

French President Francois Hollande on Monday called a “global and lasting accord” with Greece ahead of an emergency eurozone summit on the country’s debt crisis.

“I don’t want a partial or limited agreement. I am for a global and lasting accord,” Hollande said, adding France would “do all” to help reach a deal at the crunch talks in Brussels.

If an agreement is not reached by the end of the summit, Hollande said he hoped that “the foundation is such that a deal would be possible in the coming days.”
