Greek proposals create hope for deal

ATHENS - Eurozone leaders have broadly welcomed new proposals for Greek reforms amid hopes a deal can be struck within days to stop Greece defaulting on its debt.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Greece's latest offer constituted "some progress". But she said more work was needed and "time is short".

Greece must repay a €1.6bn (£1.1bn) International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan by the end of the month.

If it fails to do so, it risks crashing out of the euro and possibly the EU.

Although no deal has been struck, key obstacles appear to have been cleared, the BBC's Damian Grammaticas reports from Brussels.

The move was received with cautious optimism by leaders of 18 other eurozone nations gathered for an emergency summit in Brussels.

The European Central Bank (ECB) approved additional emergency funding for Greek banks to cover withdrawals, allowing banks to stay open and providing breathing space for a deal to be reached.

It has acted repeatedly after anxious savers withdrew more than €4bn in recent days.

The Greek banking system is on the verge of collapse due to savers' loss of confidence.

I'm Susanne from Orange Park, Florida. My husband left me for no reason on 24th of June 2011. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself. I've tried different spell casters and went to different churches to pray but all to no avail. My life was very bitter and sorrowful. Then one day, a friend of mine told me about a prophet that is very good and does not even charge for his services, he said he gave him some lucky numbers that he played in a lottery and he won 5 fives consecutively. I didn't believe it because I've worked with so many of them and it didn't work. He begged me further so I decided to try this great Prophet called Luku. I contacted him and I gave him the necessary information. He didn't ask for anything but he said after the spell works, I can then voluntarily contribute to his orphanage home which I'm doing now with joy and happiness because I still didn't believe after he told me it will back until I used the spell he gave me and the next day which was on the 29th of July, 2013 I received a call and it was my darling husband Thomas. He apologized and came back to me crying for a second change and he even gave me 10,000USD as a means of compensating me on that very day before leaving. I'm now a very a happy woman and our marriage vows were renew again and ever since he has shown me love like never before. Thank you Prophet Luku, I will forever be grateful to you. You can reach him on his email: altarofsolutions@yahoo.com. He can solve any problem you are facing now. Try him today and thank me later..

SUSANNE - 18 July 2015
