Compromise possible, says Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said a compromise is possible in the stand-off with Greece over its bailout terms.

The Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said as he arrived in Brussels for the summit that he was "very confident" a solution could be found to what he called the EU's "humanitarian crisis".

Mrs Merkel suggested there was negotiating room: "Europe always aims to find a compromise and this is the cornerstone of Europe's success."
