Eurozone very close to Greek debt deal

French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said the euro zone is very close to an agreement on Greek debt. 

He was speaking to BFM Television on the eve of key talks between the currency bloc's finance ministers. 

Mr Moscovici added that he doesn't know if there will be an agreement later today when the euro zone ministers meet to agree on unlocking a 31-billion-euro aid package for Greece as it teeters on the verge of bankruptcy. 

He said failing to reach a deal will be irresponsible at the talks given the efforts everyone has made. 

He provided few details about the outlines of a possible deal. 

But he said it may involve a combination of decreases in interest earned by lenders and profits made by central banks on Greek debt.
