PM Tsipras: 'We’re on the Final Stretch; We’re Close to A Deal'

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday expressed optimism that there will soon be positive results in the ongoing negotiations between Greece and its lenders adding that a deal is imminent and will benefit the economy. 
"We’re on the final stretch; we’re close to a deal. This agreement will be positive for the Greek economy…it will redistribute weights and I believe we will be able to present more details soon,” he told journalists after a meeting of the political negotiation group at the finance ministry.
He said there’s no risk for wages, pensions, banks and bank deposits and called on Greeks to “shut their ears to alarmists” because, as he said, there might be pressures and people who will try to create a false sense of danger.
Commenting on the negotiations, the premier noted there are differences among the country’s creditors and different policy considerations among the euro area countries. 
"I want to reassure the Greek people that we’re negotiating by securing in advance conditions of security and stability for the Greek economy. I’m positive we will soon have positive results,” he added.
