European leaders hold an emergency summit in Brussels that could break the deadlock around Greece’s debt crisis.
Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said he hoped Greece would “return to growth within the eurozone”.
On June 21, Alexis Tsipras set out new proposals to try to prevent a default on a €1.6 billion IMF loan.
But he has ruled out pension cuts, higher power rates, and an excessive budget surplus.
Greece must repay the loan by the end of June or risk crashing out of the eurozone and possibly the EU.
Talks have been in deadlock for five months. The European Commission, the IMF and the European Central Bank (ECB) are unwilling to unlock the final €7.2 billion tranche of bailout funds until Greece agrees to economic reforms.
