MADRID (AFP) –

Leaders of embattled mainstream European left parties met in Madrid on Saturday seeking to regain lost ground as they tried to strike a balance between “suicidal austerity” and financial “responsibility” at a time when debt-racked Greece is trying to renegotiate a bailout deal.

The heads of socialist and social democratic parties, threatened by extreme-right parties on the one hand and radical leftists like Syriza in Greece and Podemos in Spain on the other, tried to strike a tone of compromise particularly with relation to the economy in a bid to make gains in polls.
