Euro Lower on Renewed Greece Concerns

While EU commissioner on economics said that there have been substantial progress in the talks, time in running out for Athens, Investing.com reported.
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras also admitted the country is running out of funds but he noted that “the lack of liquidity is neither the choice nor the responsibility of the Greek government... It is a tough negotiating tactic of our partners, and I do not know whether everybody in Europe feels proud of it”.
