Germany says Greek compromise possible
Germany has said it is willing to compromise with Greece on the terms of repaying its bailout debt.

In the stand-off over the issue, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said a compromise is possible, the BBC reports.

But she added at a conference of other European leaders – “Europe’s credibility depends on us sticking to rules”.

Greece is against extending its bailout deal, saying it is damaging their economy.

On Wednesday, talks with other eurozone members hit a stalemate.

However both sides said there was still hope for a deal. Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem said the talks had been “constructive”.

The Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said as he arrived in Brussels for the summit that he was “very confident” a solution could be found to what he called the EU’s “humanitarian crisis”.

Merkel suggested there was negotiating room: “Europe always aims to find a compromise and this is the cornerstone of Europe’s success.”
