Debt and Investments the Focus of PM Tsipras Visit to Paris, Gov't Sources Say

The prime minister's stopover in Paris on the way back from Lisbon was not a "holiday" but mainly focused on finding solutions for Greece's debt and efforts to attract foreign investment, government sources said, in reply to main opposition New Democracy's criticism.
Responding to ND's claim that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had used the state aircraft "to go on holiday," the government issued a detailed announcement on Saturday stressing that the prime minister "has a heavy schedule, both in Greece and abroad, which does not permit him to take time off." During this time, the prime minister had meetings with the head of L'Oreal, who is preparing to make a major investment in Greece, representatives of the Rothschild investment bank and other investors before returning to Athens on Monday.
