The Greek government has been given a “final deadline” until the end of the week to present a proposal of reforms, ahead of a meeting of all 28 EU leaders in Brussels on Sunday (12 July).
Athens has been given until Thursday "at the latest", according to EU Council president Donald Tusk, to come forward with new proposals.
Tusk said “two formats” are necessary Sunday with euro leaders meeting first "for maybe one hour" before all leaders get around the table.
Ahead of Tuesday's meeting, several eurozone leaders expressed impatience with their Greek counterpart, who came to Brussels "empty-handed", in the words of Lithuanian leader Dalia Grybauskaite.
"The Greek side contines its effort with the people's mandate as a weapon and its desire for a viable agreement that brings an end to this story and guarantees an exit from the crisis," he said leaving the summit on Tuesday, reports AFP.
