ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras presented Greece's proposal for a deal during phone talks on Sunday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, his office said.

"The prime minister presented the three leaders Greece's proposal for a mutually beneficial agreement that will give a definitive solution and not postpone addressing the problem," it said in a statement.

The call came ahead of an emergency summit of euro zone leaders on Monday to try to avert a Greek default as talks between Athens and its foreign lenders over a debt deal remain deadlocked.
