Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed in a phone conversation on Sunday to maintain contact during talks between Athens and its lenders to reach a debt deal.
Shut out of international markets and locked in talks with its European Union and International Monetary Fund creditors over its proposed reform-for-cash deal, Greece risks running out of cash within weeks.
But during a regular meeting on Friday, euro zone finance ministers warned its government, that it would get no fresh aid until it agreed to a complete economic reform plan.
