, 3:51 PM IST

ATHENS, GREECE: Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will today ask European Council president Donald Tusk to call an EU summit to help facilitate negotiations with the debt-ridden country’s creditors, a government source said.

Tsipras’s decision came after a mooted meeting of the eurozone finance ministers was postponed, with Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem saying “more time” was needed to decide on the next steps for Greece’s massive bailout.
