German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed in a phone call with French President Francois Hollande on Sunday night that a eurozone leaders' summit should be held on Tuesday after Greeks rejected bailout terms in a referendum, a German government spokesman said.

The chancellor and president also agreed that the referendum result should be respected, said the spokesman. France's Elysee Palace confirmed the leaders want a summit on Tuesday.
