European Council President Donald Tusk warned on Wednesday that negotiations over Greece's bailout conditions will "be difficult". In comments made after his meeting with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, Tusk stressed that reaching a debt deal "will require cooperation and dialogue as well as determined efforts by Greece", but said the talks had been "open and frank on a number of issues of common concern." Tsipras, who also met with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and president of the European Parliament Martin Schulz in Brussels, said after the meeting he expects a mutually acceptable deal can be reached on his country's debt burden.
