Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will meet the French and German leaders plus the EU's top officials late Thursday to plead Athens's case for relaxing the terms of its bailout programme, an official said.
"At the request of Prime Minister Tsipras, EU President Donald Tusk will convene a meeting on Greece Thursday evening after the European Council with the participation of... Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Francois Hollande," a spokesman for Tusk said.
The meeting will also be attended by European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker, European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi and Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Dutch finance minister who chairs the euro single currency group, the spokesman added.
