No Grounds for Greek Talks Ahead of Vote: Dijsselbloem

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his creditors sparred heading into Sunday’s referendum on austerity, deepening Greece’s financial misery.

As rationing of pensions began on the third day of capital controls, Tsipras said he was willing to accept the latest offer from his antagonists as the basis for talks on a new deal. German Chancellor Angela Merkel ruled out such discussions until after the July 5 plebiscite.
