The Greek Prime Minister stated that “The negotiations are hard, we are determined, we have a plan and a strategy,” and he continued by saying that “Greeks must be proud of that fact that Greece is making a stance for its rights for the first time.  And it does so with specific and realistic proposals towards its creditors…”
“…we have submitted a realistic plan which would pull Greece out of the crisis and it would end all speculations concerning the unity of the EU.”  Our plan is complete, as per Eurogroup’s demands.  The political leaders of Europe must now decide and they must think of their voters who hold them responsible.  The two options are either a realistic resolution or a “divide and conquer” strategy.
“We represent the majority of the Greek people, those who don’t want the country to return to a status of submissiveness and loss of sovereignty”  Mr. Tsipras concluded.
