'No Deal' On Greece At Meeting Of Eurozone Finance Ministers

MarketWatch Pulse

A meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Luxembourg on Thursday produced no deal on Greece, Valdis Dombrovskis, the European Commission's vice president for the euro and social dialogue, said on Twitter. The failure to reach an agreement is a "strong signal" for Greece to "engage seriously in negotiations," he said, in the Tweet, adding that the Eurogroup, which is made up of eurozone finance ministers, "stands ready to reconvene at any moment." Speaking at a news conference, Netherlands finance minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who serves as president of the Eurogroup, said it is still possible for Greece and its creditors to reach an agreement before the end of the month but that "the ball is clearly in Greece's court."
