Austria denies reports on extraordinary eurozone meeting on Greek debt

The Austrian ministry of finance on Tuesday dismissed an Agence France-Presse (AFP) report claiming a summit of eurozone deputy finance ministers will be held here on Wednesday to discuss the Greek debt crisis. 
Responding to a press question, a ministry spokesman stressed that this is a scheduled and “routine meeting” of the Economic and Financial Committee (EFC), comprised of senior EU finance ministry officials, whereas Vienna was selected to host the meeting because Austria was the committee chair last year.

The Economic and Financial Committee (EFC) is an EU body that replaced the Monetary Committee.
