    [03] Italy's Renzi calls for 'political not just economic Europe'

    ROME (ANA-MPA/ T. Andreadis) Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi once again referred to the need to resolve the Greek economic crisis on Tuesday, while noting that the problem was bigger than the emergency situation in Greece. "I am preparing to go to Brussels for yet another discussion regarding Europe. There is, however, a problem that is even greater than the state of emergency in Greece. The problem is related to what kind of Europe we want for the future," Renzi said while speaking at CERN in Geneva. The Italian prime minister said that all sides needed to employ the utmost ingenuity in order to build a "political and not just economic Europe".

    [04] Search-and-rescue op for shipwrecked migrants continuing

    ANA-MPA -- A body was recovered by Greek rescue teams on Tuesday after a sailboat carrying 37 to 40 undocumented migrants sank in the sea between the Aegean islands of Agathonissi and Farmakonissi earlier today, the coast guard said. Greek authorities have rescued 6 people, while Turkish rescue teams, which are also participating in the operation, have picked up 13 migrants. Both countries are continuing their efforts to find survivors.

    [05] Eurogroup's Dijsselbloem announces teleconference for Wednesday

    BRUSSSELS (ANA-MPA/M. Aroni) - Eurogroup will convene on Wednesday through a teleconference, during which Greek proposals will be examined, Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem said on Tuesday after the completion of the meeting of Eurozone finance ministers.

    He said Greek proposals submitted today were not specific and they are expected to be tabled tomorrow, while the country is expected to submit a formal request for aid from the European Stability Mechanism (ESM). The EU official added that Greece needs credible reforms and that time is limited.

    He said that as soon as the request is submitted to the ESM, he would ask the institutions to examine Greece's funding needs and its debt sustainability. The restart of the negotiations will depend on the report which will be issued by the institutions.
