ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek socialist leader Evangelos Venizelos says that Greece is going to new elections after talks produced no deal.

He says "unfortunately, the country is heading again toward elections."

Venizelos met on Tuesday with party leaders convened by the country's president in a last-ditch attempt to broker a deal.
