Tsipras says no surrender to austerity

Written by Business World, on 17th Feb 2015. Posted in EU

article headlineGreek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said today that his government was in no hurry to reach a deal with the euro zone on its election promises to end to austerity and would not compromise. "There has been a custom that newly elected governments act differently from their pre-election promises. I am saying it again, we are thinking of actually implementing our promises for a change," he told parliamentary members of his radical left wing Syriza party. Tispras also accused German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble of losing his cool at a Eurogroup meeting on Monday and of expressing words undermining Greece.
