Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has attempted to defuse a growing political crisis by inviting coalition partners for talks over the government's decision to to close the state broadcaster ERT.
Greek workers are staging a 24 hour nationwide strike in protest against the government's abrupt decision to suspend the state broadcaster ERT in order to cut costs.
The two left-wing coalition partners who were invited to the meeting welcomed the opportunity to liaise with the Prime Minister, but insisted the ERT should remain open.
