In the Greek crisis Brussels makes a mediation attempt at the last minute. If the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras today accepting the offer the financiers for an austerity package and advertising for a 'yes' in the referendum, the way for another euro zone finance ministers meeting could be paved, it said in EU circles.

The assurance of Tsipras to austerity package needed to go to the President of the European Commission and the Euro Group, Jean-Claude Juncker and Jeroen Dijsselbloem, as well as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, it said. The Greek government officials left the negotiations on the package last Friday immediately prior to the announcement of the referendum.

The same had already proposed on Monday Tsipras - but with different sign. "Let them agree (our suggestions), and we will pay in the morning," Tsipras said in Athens.

The renewed request from Athens for a short-term extension of the aid program "for a few days" had been rejected by the EU heads of state and government by pointing out that Greece could apply for new aid. In this case, the Federal Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble had already announced that "negotiations but from scratch" would then begin, "because this program that we had, ending Tuesday evening, and also the foundation is then withdrawn".
