EU's Juncker making 'last effort' to resolve Greek debt problem: EU official

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is making a “last effort” to resolve a crisis over Greece’s debts after discussing the problem by phone with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Sunday, an EU official said.

The phone call was held at the request of Tsipras, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity and without giving any details.

“President Juncker is making a last effort in an extremely difficult situation,” the official said, playing down expectations of an agreement at a crucial euro zone finance ministers’ meeting in Brussels on Monday.
