Eurozone summit on Greece may only be ‘consultations’, says German gov’t spokesman

A eurozone emergency summit on Greece’s debt crisis later Monday may only take the form of “consultations” if Athens’ creditors haven’t approved Greece’s latest proposals, a German government spokesman warned.

“Without the basis for a decision”, or a previous agreement between Greece and its three international lenders with whom it has been negotiating for months, “there can only be a summit of consultations this evening”, Steffen Seibert told reporters.
