PM Tsipras tells U.S. Treasury’s Lew Greece wants deal

ATHENS: Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew that Athens aimed to reach a deal with its lenders, a Greece government official said, giving no details.

“He briefed him about the negotiations and expressed the Greek side’s intention to bridge differences between the two sides,” the official said. Athens has been racing to reach a deal with its European and IMF lenders that will unlock billions of euros of bailout aid but talks hit an impasse at the weekend and the two sides have since blamed each other for the breakdown.
