German and French leaders say a Saturday meeting of eurozone finance ministers will be vital for the success of the talks on a Greek bailout deal. German Chancellor Angela Merkel says all parties involved in the talks should work to find a solution before financial markets reopen on Monday. The German chancellor made the remarks at a press conference in Brussels where the crunch talks are taking place. Like Merkel, French President Francois Hollande described the Saturday meeting as crucial. He says Paris will spare no effort to get a universal and durable deal with Greece. Hollande also says when Greece, Europe, and the eurozone are at stake, EU member states have to know how to conclude negotiations.
