Juncker rules out Greek default, 'solution in weeks' -update

Commission President says crucial time has arrived

(ANSA) - Brussels, March 13 - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Friday ruled out the possibility of Greece defaulting on its public debt and said he could see a solution coming within weeks as he met Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras for talks on Athens' financial rescue. "We have come to the decisive moments," Juncker said. "The Commission is not a lead player in this phase, but we'll do everything to cooperate. What we exclude is a default. I think a solution in the coming weeks is possible".
