Tsipras details ‘overall situation’ to Obama, not specific proposals

Government sources clarify earlier reports, which claimed that Greek PM discussed ‘specific proposals’

Greek PM Alexis Tsipras detailed the ‘general framework’ in the ongoing “Greek crisis” saga to US President Barack Obama in a telephone call on Tuesday, but not specific proposals considered by Athens.
The clarification, which was urgently disseminated via the “sources” route later in the afternoon, sought to clear up an early statement which could have been misconstrued, namely, Tsipras discussing proposals when no proposals were tabled at the same-day Eurogroup meeting.
A new package of proposals is nevertheless expected to be submitted by the Greek side on Wednesday, during a Eurogroup teleconference.
According to reports, the POTUS again pressed for a successful conclusion to negotiations between “capital controlled” Athens and its creditors.
