Top eurozone officials on Friday kept up the
pressure on Greece to deliver new bailout proposals so as to avoid
bankruptcy, as Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras collected some pledges
of help during a visit to Russia, dpa reported.
Fears are rife that Greece is about to run out of money, after it has
struggled for months to agree with its creditors on economic reforms
that would unlock 7.2 billion euros (8.1 billion dollars) in bailout
aid for Athens.
Time is now running out as the European part of the Greek bailout is
expiring on June 30, on the same day when the country is supposed to
repay 1.6 billion euros to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
'We are close to the point where the Greek government will have to
choose between accepting what I believe is a good offer of continued
support or to head towards default,' EU President Donald Tusk warned
in a video message released Friday.
