Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will address lawmakers on Friday as protracted talks over a financial rescue risk creating friction within his anti-austerity party as well as with creditors.

After meeting in Brussels with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Tsipras stuck to his position that any basis for an accord must be a Greek proposal. Citing a draft document, German newspaper Tagesspiegel reported the plan includes extra tax for companies and higher earners. A government spokeswoman declined to comment.
