Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Junker, who will head European Finance Ministers on Nov. 29, continued to pressure on Greece as he gave Greece a deadline of one week to provide a written pledge for adopting austerity measures as a clause to receiving the next disbarment as well as any other future aids from international lenders.

Junker aims to see a cross-party agreement in Greece as Antonis Samaras, the leader of Greece's New Democracy party which is part of the unity government,still rejects the written pledge.

Junkerput the written pledge as a condition for the next installment as euro area finance ministers will decide on Nov. 29 whether Greece is eligible for the next tranche of last year's 110 billion euro bailout.

Yesterday, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso delivered a clear message to Samaras by asking him to stop playing political games.
