Monday, 06 July 2015
Greece is and will remain an integral part of the European Union, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Sunday night, during a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the Presidential Mansion.
The President noted that Greece’s will to remain in the eurozone and Europe is also non-negotiable. He stressed the importance of “forging our national unity and unanimity to shape a healthy and strong national front to restore normalcy in the economy and to immediately claim a solution to the problems in the negotiations with our partners.” Pavlopoulos agreed with Tsipras’ statement of ending the “strangulation of the economy” and added that Greek proposals will be realistic and logical. “We’re in a position to promote immediately a meaningful negotiation to find a reliable solution and an honorable compromise for the good of Europe,” the President said.
“They must all understand that Europe goes through compromise rather than through divisions.” Tsipras also asked Pavlopoulos to convene the council of political leaders, which the President accepted. The meeting is set for 10.00 am Greek time.
