Saint Petersburg (AFP) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who is locked in bitter bailout negotiations with the EU and IMF, sealed an agreement to build a pipeline with sanctions-hit Russia Friday in a deal likely to irritate European leaders.
And just like that things are going bump in the night once more. First, as previously reported, the $100+ WTI surge continues on fears over how the Egyptian coup will unfold, now that Mursi has a few short hours left until his army-given ultimatum runs out.
A story is making the rounds that suggests leaders are going to get together and hammer out a "fiscal union".
The story appears to have originated on the Welt Online, a German tabloid. The article mentions a Secret Plan for a New Europe.
