Breaking: Alexis Tsipras tweets that some creditors did not accept the Greek bailout plan. Now what?

Via RT…

In his official Twitter account Tsipras said the international creditors have never been so persistent in rejecting reform plans, neither in Ireland nor in Portugal. This stance means they either don’t want an agreement or serve specific interests in Greece, he said.

The finance ministers of the 19 eurozone countries are to hold talks on Wednesday to sort out the details of the new Greek proposals. Tsipras will also meet ECB President Mario Draghi, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday to try to strike a deal before the June 30 deadline to repay about €1.6 billion of IMF debt.

A broader meeting of all 28 EU members is scheduled for Thursday.

European stocks fell on the Tsipras statement. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index was down 0.5 percent to 396.69 at 13:08pm MSK. The Greek ASE Index fell 3.1 percent, ending its four-day upward trend, and is the biggest drop among Western European markets.
