THE group of major banks negotiating on a write-down of Greek sovereign debt say they have not reached a deal on its debt, including any new write-down.
"There has been no agreement on any Greek deal or a specific 'haircut'," said Charles Dallara, the head of the Institute of International Finance which is representing the banks in EU negotiations.
"We remain open to a dialogue in search of a voluntary agreement. There is no agreement on any element of a deal."
