5th July 2015, Comments 0 comments

Eurozone nations will hold a summit on Tuesday to discuss the Greek referendum result, EU President Donald Tusk said, after the German and French leaders called for a meeting.

"I have called a EuroSummit Tuesday evening at 18h (1600 GMT) to discuss situation after referendum in Greece," Tusk said on Twitter on Sunday after Greek voters said a resounding 'No' to creditor demands for further austerity in return for bailout funds.

The Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers will meet on Tuesday before the summit, said Michel Reijins, a spokesman for Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem.

"Additional Eurogroup on Tuesday 7 July to prepare euro summit on Greece, starting time to be confirmed," he tweeted.

Deputy finance ministers from the eurozone will meet on Monday, an official told AFP earlier.
