Germany says no concrete plans for euro crisis summit

BERLIN, July 13 (Reuters) - There are no firm plans to hold an emergency summit of EU leaders on the euro crisis and the main priority is for finance ministers to agree details of a second rescue package for Greece, a German government spokeswoman said.

“There are no concrete plans for a special summit,” the spokeswoman said in response to a Reuters query. “The priority is for finance ministers to agree a new aid package for Greece.”

EU diplomats told Reuters on Tuesday that a special summit would be held on Friday amid rising worries that the bloc’s debt crisis is infecting large countries like Italy and divisions over how to structure a new Greek aid deal.
