As the stalemate over a Greek debt deal continues in Europe, the Greek newspaper Ekathimerini published a group of documents leaked from the last week of Eurogroup meetings on Greece’s bailout terms.

They include several statements made at the meeting by Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, as well as several technical documents.
