1:02 pm
first, jacky rowland reports from brussels. >> a deal as last. after talks that lasted all night, eurozone leaders emerged to announce they avoided the worst objective grexit. >> after 17 hours of negotiations we have finally reached it. someone can say that we have an agreetement. >> but the greeks need to absorb a large agreement and agree to sell off $50 billion of state assets. an exhaust evidence alexis tsipras tried to put the most positive gloss on it. >> the deal is done. we prevented the plan of financial action fixfinancial asphyxiation.
1:03 pm
finally we achieved in this hard fight the restructure of the debt and secured financing for medium term. >> reporter: chancellor merkel, did say they would look at restructuring debt, none of it would be written off. >> this success has come that despite the fact that over the past weeks and months, the most important currency trust was lost between us. but going forward the most important thing will be to implement what we have disagreed during the night. >> reporter: these were grueling talks for everyone who spent the night at the european council. but this process is far from over. the idea is that half the money raved forraised will be used for the
1:04 pm
banks, a quarter would be to pay off accident and the rest invested in greece. talks on the bailout cannot even begin until greek parliament passes the entire package of measures into law. so the european leaders drive away into the gray morning. some of them can catch some much needed sleep but not the prime prime minister. he expects another bruising when he faces parliament and people of greece. jacky rowland, al jazeera brussels. >> neave barker is in brussels. very much the ball is in the greek court, they have to push things through but what happens after that from the european perspective? >> you're right, the feeling here is that the ball is very much in greece's court. i've just come out of a press conference by the eurogroup
1:05 pm
reelected for a few more years the language was about accountability trust responsibility clear cut messages from brussels to athens. you can't help but feel that despite these marathon talks the longest summit in eu history, there is still something of a trust deficit. so all eyes are really on the decision that will be made in athens on wednesday. only after the greek government throws its weight between a raft of austerity measures, something showing a sign of strain in athens can eurozone countries then go ahead and ratify tear decisions in their own respective parliaments. respective parliaments. the organization that's in charge of the funds before the money can be handed to greece.
1:06 pm
the question is whether the greek government will back tough new austerity. >> thank you very much indeed. simon mcgregor wood is in athens. talk us through how the parliament is significant in all of this. >> reporter: well, mr. tsipras is already engaged in some very complex political negotiations with his own party the syriza party he has his own issue there, there are a growing number of people indicating that they will not support the deal. and later this evening we expect him to have a meeting with the defense minister who is the leader of the independent greeks which is the junior coalition partners strangely enough a right wing party. they have been pretty bold publicly in the last 24 hours and as recently the last hour, as of the moment they can't accept or support the deal but then bizarrely have said we have no plans to leave the
1:07 pm
government. so it's not entirely clear what they mean by that. but he certainly has some issues with his own government. without getting into the mathematics of the greek parliament and the different parties he's probably still going to be okay because the opposition parties from the center right and from the right are suggesting that they will support the package of measures, and get -- allow him to push through these very contentious laws by wednesday which is a absolute condition for whole process to move forward. just on the issue of finance briefly lauren that also is an issue, within the next week, two weeks they need the greeks about 10 billion eurozone, they have a -- euros. they have a bunch of deadlines coming up. what they need is annal immediate bridging finance the word given oit from the eurogroup, to keep them through
1:08 pm
this process of immediate payments before the big 86 billion bailout is negotiated. we understand that that immediate cash to keep things going will be contingent as is the whole deal on him getting these laws through the parliament on wednesday. so everything here focused on his efforts to get enough votes behind these deals these laws on wednesday. absolutely critical moment. >> okay, simon mcgregor wood with the latest live in athens. thank you. now, the ongoing iran nuclear talks in vienna. france's foreign minister says he expects some kind of statement between iran and the world powers within hours. world powers have been trying to reach a deal that would limit tehran's nuclear program in
1:09 pm
exchange of the easing of sanctions. diplomatic editor james bays what is your guess on what will happen there? >> i'm afraid some of it is guesses because we're not really getting a lot of concrete information coming from the luxury hotel behind me. there has been some optimism that perhaps there could be this decision on monday. a lot of meetings taking place between different combinations of these foreign ministers. we had one important meeting with the iranian foreign minister mohammed javad zarif john kerry and frederica mogherini. we had frederica moang come out mogherini
1:10 pm
come out on her balcony. and i threw a few questions at her. is there a chance of a deal? are you making progress? so that was the view of frederica mogherini giving her answer he with sign language. we then had a similar encounter with the iranian foreign minister mohammed javad zarif. who also came out on his balcony. i threw a question to him to which he replied tierd and tired and renewed. will there be talks tomorrow, i.e. tuesday and he said possibly. not a lot of nuance, not a lot of detail, we're shouting at
1:11 pm
them on the balcony of the hotel. there is no concrete information coming out. one thing worth noting is remember the interim deal that's been in place since november 2013 between iran and the six powers involved in these talks. that's been extended so many times, in fact it has been extended three times since we've been in vienna. the lately latest extension was today. >> james bays, thank you so much. car bomb killing 33 people, afghan troops and civilians are dead including 12 children. a cypriat boat has be rescued

1:19 pm
the air for them. they say they will wait and see the details of this deal but they are worried. there are more than 100 islands in greece and most of them live off tourists. now so far the islands had lower taxes than the mainland. now under the new deal, hotels, restaurants and catering businesses will face an increase in taxes that in some cases could reach 23%. that will translate in higher prices for tourists. this comes at that time where the industry is about the only one functioning in this country providing up to 15% of the annual jdp. now they are concerned that with an increase in prices greece will become less attractive as a tourist destination. >> the iraqi government says it is making progress in its effort to retake the largest province
