BBC News - Eurozone leaders 'call off Greece crisis talks'

The head of the eurozone countries has downgraded an eurozone finance ministers meeting on Wednesday, saying Greece has not yet given the necessary assurances about its austerity plan.

Ministers, who had demanded Greece find an extra 325m euros of savings, had been set to meet in Brussels.

But Eurogroup President Jean-Claude Juncker said the talks would be replaced by a conference call.

He said technical work with Greece was still needed "in a number of areas".

Greece gets another shove towards the exit from eurozone | Business | The Guardian

With every day of prevarication and grandstanding over the future of Greece, Europe's power-brokers are nudging the crisis-hit country closer to the emergency exit.

If Angela Merkel, Nicolas Sarkozy and the Brussels elite were deliberately trying to prolong the agony for Greece's battle-scarred political class, they couldn't have done a better job.

After Lucas Papademos finally delivered a deal on the latest package of savage austerity measures last week, following tortuous negotiations with his coalition partners, he might have hoped for a quick rubber stamp from the "troika" of the EU, IMF and European Central Bank.
