    EUR/USD - ....... Reuters reported Greece faces a liquidity problem and needs the cooperation of its European lenders to deal with a possible cash crunch, its deputy prime minister said.
    Greece has been kept afloat since 2010 by EU/IMF bailouts totaling 240 bln euros and risks running out of cash in weeks amid a widening rift with its creditors.

    "We haven't received any (bailout) tranches since August 2014 but we have been meeting all of our obligations," Deputy PM Yannis Dragasakis told Greek Alpha TV. "This has its limits."

    Asked whether Greece risked running out of cash if it does not reach a deal with its lenders, Dragasakis said:

    "Of course we have a liquidity problem, for the reason I mentioned. We have obligations which, in order for us to meet, we need the good cooperation of the European institutions."

    Dragasakis ruled out early elections or a referendum should Athens's negotiations with the euro zone fail. "There are some things that we need to keep in the back of our minds ... (however) neither elections nor a referendum are on the table at the moment," he said, without elaborating on what the referendum might be on.

    Earlier news on Reuters quoting comments from Greek deputy PM who says :
    -Greece has a liquidity problem, we need good cooperation with EU partners to meet our obligations.
    -grexit does not concern us, it is not an option for our government.
    -a referendum is not on the table at the moment.

    Yesterday European Council President Donald Tusk confirmed he would hold talks with the leaders of France, Germany and Greece and the heads of the European Central Bank and the euro group on Thursday to discuss the Greek debt crisis.
    President Francois Hollande, Chancellor Angela Merkel and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras as well as the ECB's Mario Draghi will participate in the meeting, while Jeroen Dijsselbloem will also be present, a spokesman for Tusk said.
    The talks will take place on the sidelines of an EU summit in Brussels.
