"I bring to the table experience that others don't have," he was quoted as saying after a telephone interview.

 3 hrs | Eurozone countries issue ultimatum for Greece to submit proposals and reach consensus

              Eurozone countries have told the Greek government to present their proposals in detail no later than Thursday, European Council President Donald Tusk says, warning that negotiations for another aid package will end within days if no consensus can be reached. "Our inability to find an agreement may lead to the bankruptcy of Greece, and the insolvency of its banking system, and for sure it will be most painful for the Greek people," Tusk said. "Until now I've avoided talking about deadlines, but tonight I have to say it loud and clear, that the final deadline ends this week."

 7 hrs | Greece to submit proposals in coming hours, Eurogroup to discuss on Wednesday - Dijsselbloem

              Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos did not present any new proposals during Tuesday's Eurogroup meeting in Brussels, but he will soon send a letter to request a new bailout package before presenting the Greek government's proposals, Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem says. "Already tomorrow morning we will have another conference call to talk about this letter, with the formal request for ESM support. And that will be for me the signal to start the process. First step will be to ask the institutions to assess the financial situation in Greece - financing needs, debt sustainability - and then we'll have another Eurogroup to decide whether we will formally start the talks," he said, adding that any agreement must be for a medium-term program to ensure credibility.
