  • [01] Alexis Tsipras: It's time to take a big step

    It's time to take a big step, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Thursday said upon his arrival at the EU summit.

    Referring to the Greek issue, he said: "I will have the opportunity to discuss with a lot of colleagues without threats and with respect to each country's sovereignty rights."

    As regards the issues of the summit, he said: "We need to continue discussions in order to maintain stability in difficult and sensitive times for Europe as a whole. We need to maintain the EU-Turkey agreement but at the same time to overcome the threats. We also need to maintain solidarity and take bold decisions in order to share the burden and responsibility. At the same time, all sides must meet their obligations to overcome the difficulties and avoid obstacles, improving our position in the future."

    [02] Hollande expresses support to Greece

    BRUSSELS (ANA/ Ch.Vassilaki) - French President Francois Hollande expressed his support to Greece upon his arrival at the EU summit on Thursday regarding the implementation of the debt relief measures.

    "I support the decisions taken at the Eurogroup. The Eurogroup decided relief measures for the Greek debt, which also are not yet satisfactory," he said and added: "We cannot demand further reforms from Greece or prohibit Greece to take decisions within the framework of the promises taken in Brussels so that a solution on Greece's future is found."

    "I am in favour of a decent stance towards Greece in order to stay in the eurozone and achieve a solution to the debt that would allow stability in the country and Europe," the French President concluded.
