LONDON (Reuters) - Greece has made "enormous strides" at reaching a deal with its international lenders to avert bankruptcy, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said on Sunday. "It is now up to the institutions to do their bit. We have met them three quarters of the way, they need to meet us one quarter of the way," he told the BBC's Andrew Marr show. Varoufakis also said it would be "catastrophic" if Greece left the euro, predicting it would be would be "the beginning of the end of the common currency project".

Britain's Prime Minister Cameron gestures as he speaks at a news conference after the Eastern Partnership Summit in RigaBritain's opposition Labour Party will back Prime Minister David Cameron's plans to hold a referendum on the country's European Union membership by the end of 2017, its acting leader said on Sunday. Labour had fought this month's national election, in which it suffered a crushing defeat to Cameron's Conservatives, on the policy that it would offer Britons an EU referendum only if there were a further transfer of powers to Brussels from London. Cameron, who has promised to renegotiate Britain's ties with the EU ahead of the referendum, will on Wednesday set out plans to enshrine the vote in law when his government's legislative agenda is published.

A Greek national flag flutters next to a statue of ancient Greek goddess Athena, in AthensATHENS (Reuters) - Greece will not make a debt repayment to the International Monetary Fund due next month as it does not have the money, the country's interior minister said on Sunday. "The four installments for the IMF in June are 1.6 billion euros ($1.8 billion), this money will not be given and is not there to be given," Nikos Voutsis told Greek Mega TV's weekend show. Shut out of bond markets and with bailout aid locked, Athens has been scraping state coffers to meet debt obligations and to pay wages and pensions.
