Worries over Greece hit stock markets across Europe again after a report that the country's finance minister was not planning to present new bailout proposals at a meeting with eurozone counterparts later this week.

In early trading Tuesday, all major stock indexes in Europe were lower with Germany's DAX a big faller, down 1 percent. The main index in Athens fell 0.3 percent.

The falls come after Germany's Bild daily quoted Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis as saying he wasn't planning to present anything new at Thursday's meeting of the eurozone's 19 finance ministers — billed as potentially decisive in the standoff over Greece's stalled bailout.

Without the release of the remaining money left in Greece's bailout fund, the country faces the prospect of a debt default on June 30.
