Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras has called for joint talks this week with German chancellor Angela Merkel, French president Francois Hollande and senior European Union officials on troubled bailout negotiations threatening his country’s economy.

A senior government official said the request was made during a telephone call between Mr Tsipras and European Council president Donald Tusk.

The talks would also include European Central Bank president Mario Draghi and EU Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, and would be held in Brussels on Thursday ahead of an EU leaders’ meeting.

Mr Tsipras is already due to meet Ms Merkel in Berlin on Monday and Russian president Vladimir Putin in Moscow on April 8.
