Greek PM set for crucial meeting with European Commission President

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras met Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi in Rome on February 3 before meetings with European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker and French President Francois Hollande in Brussels on February 4, as part of a drive to agree debt-relief for Greece.

“I believe the conditions exist to find an accord with the European institutions,” Renzi said at a joint news conference with Tsipras. The Italian PM assured his Greek counterpart that he could rely on “the greatest possible support, both in terms of bilateral co-operation and in availability for dialogue.”

Tsipras said “there has to be a common struggle with the same values and responsibility so that the new generation can find its hope again.”
