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.
