Greek issue discussed for two hours at summit meeting in Brussels

European leaders discussed the Greek issue for two hours during the Summit meeting in Brussels on Thursday evening, although the topic was not on the agenda, European diplomatic sources said.

According to the sources, leaders concluded that the issue of Greece must be resolved at the level of the institutions and the Eurogroup. They also decided that there’s no need for another Eurozone summit meeting today or on Friday.

The first one to speak at the meeting, the same sources said, was Eurogroup Chairman Jeroan Dijsselbloem who presented the progress made in the negotiations and was then followed by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

Other leaders presented their views, according to the sources.
