Finnish PM says time running out for Greece, need deal on Monday

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Time is running out for Greece and euro zone ministers must agree a deal to tackle its debt problems on Monday, Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb told reporters on Wednesday.

“I am definitely worried. Time is running out. We need a deal on Monday,” he said.

In seven hours of crisis talks in Brussels that ended after midnight, euro zone finance ministers were unable to agree even a joint statement on the next procedural steps.
