    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Another meeting of Eurozone finance ministers on Greece debt settlement finalized in Brussels without a compromise, Finland Finance Minister Alexander Stubb said on Thursday.

    "That's it for today. Institutions and Greece to continue work. #Eurogroup back later, but not today," Stubb wrote in his Twitter.

    Athens is attempting to unlock financial aid from its main international creditors to avoid a default on its multibillion-dollar debt. Its current bailout program expires on June 30.

    Greece's overall debt stands at about $350 billion, of which $270 billion is owed to the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
