Tsipras asks for a summit if agreement is not reached at Eurogroup

Tsipras asks for a summit if agreement is not reached at Eurogroup
 

We are not willing to observe any more games against the Greek people and Europe’s prospects, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday said in a meeting with the president of the European Council Donald Tusk.

Tsipras also asked for a summit if there is no agreement with the institutions at the Eurogroup meeting on Friday.

“Every time we are close to an agreement with the institutions, some table additional demands and violate those already agreed,” Tsipras underlined in joint statements with Tusk. “Even today, some of the creditors continue to be unrepentant. After the delays in the first review, because of unnecessary additional measures required for 2018, they are repeating the same delay policy.”

“We are not playing a game; we are playing with the people’s future,” he underlined adding that he shares the same view with Tusk that “we are very close to an agreement.” However, if an agreement is not reached at the Eurogroup on Friday, then initiatives at a higher level must be assumed.

Problems will soon be resolved and the people will reap the fruits of their sacrifice, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday said in a meeting with the president of the European Council Donald Tusk.

Our aim is to have some results before the Easter, he said adding that every day of delay, it has an impact on the Greek economy.

“We are not willing to observe any more games against the Greek people and Europe’s prospects,” he underlined.
