Crucial meeting tonight in Brussels

A meeting with focus on Greece will take place on Thursday evening in Brussels after the end of the EU Summit between Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and other European top officials.

"Following Mr.Tsipras' request, the President of the European Council Donald Tusk will organise a meeting on Greece in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande, ECB chief Mario Draghi and the European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker will participate," said a European Council representative who clarified that Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijesslbloem will also attend the meeting.

US president Barack Obama had a phone conversation on Wednesday with Merkel and referred to a 'realistic agreement' aiming at Greece's return to growth within the eurozone.
