Eurozone summit on Greece confirmed for Tuesday: Tusk
[BRUSSELS] Eurozone nations will hold a summit on Tuesday to discuss the Greek referendum result, EU President Donald Tusk said, after the German and French leaders called for a meeting.
"I have called a EuroSummit Tuesday evening at 18hr (1600 GMT) to discuss situation after referendum in Greece," Mr Tusk said on Twitter on Sunday after Greek voters said a resounding 'No' to creditor demands for further austerity in return for bailout funds.
The Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers will meet on Tuesday before the summit, said Michel Reijins, a spokesman for Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem.
"Additional Eurogroup on Tuesday 7 July to prepare euro summit on Greece, starting time to be confirmed," he tweeted.
Deputy finance ministers from the eurozone will meet on Monday, an official told AFP earlier.
