Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras spoke on the with the President of the Republic of Cyprus Nikos Anastasiades Sunday.

The two leaders, according to government sources, discussed current developments, while the Cypriot President will visit Athens on Easter Friday, April 17, to brief the Prime Minister on the talks he will have earlier with the special adviser of UN Secretary General on the Cyprus matter, Espen Barth Eide.

The President of the Republic said that “some deliberately” made sure to highlight some aspects of his response to a question on the possible exit of Greece from the euro.

He stressed that his answer was that he feels it is impossible and unlikely “to occur anything bad or worse something that will bring a Grexit. “As such, it does not mean that I supported or support (something like that), instead I spoke of a vote of confidence to the Greek economy and the policies the Greek Government follows”.

At some time, Anastasiades said, “there is the need for more ethics from some journalists, I mean those who distort or isolate to cause problems”.

Earlier, government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides, had spoken of a misinterpretation of the mention on the preparation for a possible exit of Greece from the Eurozone.
