Alexis Tsipras yet to comply with terms of emergency loans, say euro area ministers. 

The European Union is pressuring Greece to resolve outstanding pension and labour-market issues with its bailout creditors, as the country missed yet another deadline for unlocking funds this week.

Euro area finance ministers meeting in Brussels on Monday said the government of Alexis Tsipras had yet to comply with the terms attached to the emergency loans that have kept the country afloat since 2010.

It also emerged that the ministers are to discuss whether whether Jeroen Dijsselbloem can complete his term as their chairman after his party lost heavily at the Dutch elections, putting in doubt its participation in the next government.
