Protesters wave Greek and EU flags during a pro-Euro rally in front of the parliament building, in AthensATHENS/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A defiant Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras urged Greeks on Wednesday to reject an international bailout deal, wrecking any prospect of repairing broken relations with EU partners before a referendum on Sunday that may decide Greece's future in Europe. Less than 24 hours after he wrote a conciliatory letter to creditors asking for a new bailout that would accept many of their terms, Tsipras abruptly switched back into combative mode in a television address. A day after Greece became the first advanced economy to default on debt to the IMF, long lines at cash machines provided a stark visual symbol of the pressure on Tsipras, who came to power in January vowing to end austerity and protect the poor.

Euro zone finance ministers in the Eurogroup discussed a Greek application for a new conditional loan package on a conference call on Wednesday, EU officials said, but decided to freeze talks until after Sunday's referendum. Two letters from Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to creditors on Tuesday came too late to secure an extension to the previous bailout which expired at midnight (2200 GMT), just as Greece defaulted on a 1.6 billion euro ($1.8 billion) debt repayment to the IMF. - Eurogroup could agree Greece needs financial assistance, not a major doubt given that it is effectively bankrupt and has lost access to financial markets.
