Greek ministers have discussed strategy and a new package of debt proposals two days before a crucial summit of Eurozone leaders.

A meeting between Prime Minster Alexis Tsipras and three senior ministers finished this evening and a new one is scheduled for the morning.

"We aim at an agreement" on Monday, Economy Minister George Stathakis told reporters after leaving the meeting.

Minister of State Alekos Flambouraris said in a TV interview earlier that there could be a phone discussion between Mr Tsipras and European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker later, although it had not been scheduled yet.

The government said Mr Tsipras has cancelled a visit to Strasbourg on Tuesday, where he was scheduled to speak at the Council of Europe.
