Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras won a commitment to seek a last-minute rescue at an emergency eurozone summit Tuesday, before his country's banks run out of money.However, eurozone sources in Brussels said ECB President Mario Draghi had assured finance ministers that the central bank would keep Greek lenders afloat this week as long as negotiations were underway.a solution still depends on Tsipras putting forward convincing reform proposals and rushing key measures through parliament by the weekend to make Greece's public finances sustainable. If he does, bridge financing could be provided by "Greece's friends" and by releasing past ECB profits on Greek bonds, to prevent Athens from missing a crucial 3.5 billion eurobond redemption to the ECB on July 20, the sources said.
