Greece debt crisis: 'GROUNDHOG DAY' talks fail to break deadlock over bailout

GREECE debt crisis talks were labelled a "Groundhog Day" by a minister, as Athens and its lenders remain in a bitter deadlock over the terms of the bailout programme.

The Eurogroup meeting of eurozone finance ministers today looked unlikely to make any headway on a review of the Greek rescue, which has now dragged on for months. 

Slovakia finance minister Peter Kazimir likened the gathering to the hit film where the same events replay over and over. 

He wrote on Twitter: "It looks like #Greece Groundhog Day today. We'll sit down, get updates, and teams will return to #Athens trying to work things out. #eurozone"

A deal needs to be agreed or Athens could struggle to make debt repayments due in the summer.
