Greece sent the wrong letter on Thursday - Bild reports

The Greek government accidentally (maybe on purpose) sent the wrong letter yesterday. The intended version supposedly accepted conditions agreed to by the previous government, Germany's Bild Zeitung reported Friday citing government sources.

According to the report, Tsipras, Juncker and  Dijsselbloem Wednesday had prepared a letter to secure support of bailout partners. However, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis sent an altered version of the letter that omitted the parts that said Greece will accept bailout conditions agreed to by the previous government.

Tsipras later told Merkel it was an "administrative mistake."

The Eurogroup meeting is finally supposed to start an moment now.
