European stocks closed sharply higher on Friday after investors took heart from a rebound in China and reforms proposals from Greece.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 ended the day more than 2 percent higher, and on the week closed 1.5 percent higher.
Markets ended the day strongly in positive territory, following news that Greece had submitted economic reform proposals and asked for 53.5 billion euros ($59.4 billion) as part of a new bailout package from its creditors. The Greek parliament will vote on the measures on Friday and on Saturday, euro zone finance ministers will have their say.
At Europe's close on Friday, U.S. stocks surged as a second day of recovery in Chinese stocks and hopes of a resolution in Greece boosted investor sentiment.
