Tsipras spoke with Merkel, interrupting a meeting with leaders of Greece’s largest political parties convened by President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, ANA-MPA news agency reported.

The meeting ended after a seven-hour marathon session. Prime Minister Tsipras did not speak to media as he headed straight to the government headquarters in the Maximos Mansion after.
