Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė says that the Greek government still does not understand what may happen to the state if its authorities do not take responsibility for their actions and that the eurozone's leaders are still "far away from" a deal with Greece to resolve the debt crisis.

"Up today the meeting was good on the process, but not on the outcome. The next 48 hours are absolutely important, but still we are not feeling the Greek government really understands what can happen or could happen if they do not fulfil their responsibility to take the country's future into their hands," the president said after a eurozone summit in Brussels.

"Nobody can live the life instead of Greeks; nobody can perform their responsibilities instead of the Greek government. And that's exactly what we are talking about, so today we (...) persuade the Greek government to use our experiences and to perform what is expected from them and what is necessary," she said.

When asked if she was impressed by Greece's proposals, Grybauskaitė said, "Not yet, but agreement is necessary for all of us (...), but we are still far away from it."
