Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, upon his arrival at the European Commission headquarters in Brussels on Monday, referred to the key points of the agreement proposed by the Greek government.
Tsipras is currently meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. Government Vice President Yiannis Dragasakis and State Minister Nikos Pappas are also part of the Greek delegation.
“Our aim is to achieve an economically viable agreement, leaving excessive primary surpluses behind, saving pensions and salaries, avoiding excessive and unreasonable increases in electricity for the middle class families, restoring normality in labor relations and at the same time promoting the necessary structural and legal reforms aimed at redistributing the burden, combating tax evasion and corruption. These are our key points for an agreement,” Tsipras said.
Asked whether he sees an agreement on Monday, Juncker said “Progress was made over the past days but we are not there yet.”
“I don’t know if we will have an agreement today,” he added.
