"The problem is that Greece has lived beyond its means for a long time and that nobody wants to give Greece money anymore without guarantees," C said, noting that Athens had to stick to agreed reforms to become competitive. Schaeuble added that the new Greek government was behaving "quite irresponsibly" right now and that it was no help to insult others who have supported the country in the past.

"Who is irresponsible and who is responsible is subjective," Sakellaridis told Parapolitika. "I could also say that Germany's behavior is irresponsible. But I don't want to trade in smear words."

The meeting of euro zone finance ministers is due to begin at 1400 GMT (9 a.m. EST). Reuters
