Greek PM Tsipras speculates on lenders non-acceptance of equivalent measures

Departing for Brussels

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, shortly before leaving for Brussels on Wednesday, refered to Greece’s creditors insistence on a certain course of measures instead of allowing Greece to yield equivalent amounts with different reforms. He said, according to a government source:

“The non-acceptance of equivalent measures is unprecedented. Neither in Ireland nor in Portugal. Nowhere! This strange stance may be due to two reasons. Either they do not want an agreement or they serve specific interests in Greece.”
