'Low expectation' of Greece deal at meetings this week: EU spokesman

BRUSSELS (AFP) - The EU sees little chance of any final pact to resolve the debt standoff with the new Greek government at meetings in Brussels this week, a European Commission spokesman said on Tuesday.

"We have low expectations that any final agreements will be reached tomorrow or at the European Council," Mina Andreeva told reporters, referring to a meeting of EU finance ministers on Wednesday and a leaders' summit on Thursday.
