Greece on The Brink of an Exit

Updated on

Greece lurched closer to an exit from the euro as a meeting of finance officials to reach a deal over aid ended in frustration, forcing leaders to call for an emergency summit for Monday.

As the European Central Bank prepared for its own emergency session on Friday, thousands of Greeks piled outside parliament in Athens last night asking for the nation to be saved. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s government blamed a conspiracy to blackmail Greece for the breakdown in talks, while the premier said an agreement would still be reached.
