Tsipras: Greece made ‘comprehensive and realistic proposal’ to creditors

Greece has sent a “comprehensive and realistic proposal” to its creditors that it hopes will seal a deal over its bailout, Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras said on Tuesday June 2.

Tsipras said the plan included “concessions that will be difficult” and he is due to meet European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels on Wednesday to discuss the Greek proposals.

“We are not waiting for them to submit a proposal, Greece is submitting a plan – it is now clear that the decision on whether they want to adjust to realism […] the decision rests with the political leadership of Europe,” the Greek prime minister said.

According to Greek government sources, the proposal was sent to institutions on Monday because otherwise talks would have focused on proposals the creditors are expected to make this week and Athens would appear uninvolved.
