No Greece crisis meeting on Friday -- Eurogroup spokesman

BRUSSELS, May 6 (Reuters) - Reports of a possible meeting of euro zone finance ministers in Luxembourg on Friday to discuss the threat of Greece leaving the euro zone are “totally wrong”, the spokesman for Eurogroup Chairman Jean-Claude Juncker said.

German magazine Der Spiegel reported online that Greece had raised the possibility of leaving the euro zone and introducing its own currency, and said that a crisis meeting of euro zone finance ministers and the European Commission would be held on Friday evening in Luxembourg, Juncker’s hometown.

“I totally deny that there is a meeting, these reports are totally wrong,” Juncker’s spokesman Guy Schuller told Reuters by telephone.
