Greece and the institutions managing its bailout review will break off negotiations in Brussels without having cleared a path to conclude the deliberations that would release needed rescue funds.

Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos, who was meeting with officials from the euro area and the International Monetary Fund, will return to Athens by Saturday, a Greek government officials said in a text message.
