Greek state television says a critical meeting has ended involving the country's president, prime minister and the head of the main opposition party to find common ground on forming an interim government and end a severe political crisis.
The crisis in Athens has threatened the country's ability to avoid a catastrophic bankruptcy and retain its cherished eurozone membership.
Prime Minister George Papandreou has said he will step aside once an agreement is reached on an interim government whose main task will be to pass a new European debt deal. Opposition leader Antonis Samaras had insisted Papandreou resign before negotiations began.
President Karolos Papoulias hosted Sunday night's meeting, which state NET TV said ended after about 1 1/2 hours. There was no immediate word on the outcome.
