Greek PM optimistic about resolving financial woes after Brussels talks

Xinhua, March 20, 2015 Adjust font size:

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was optimistic about resolving the country's financial crisis after his first round of meeting with European leaders in Brussels, the prime minister's press office said on Friday.

"We are more optimistic after this deliberation. All the sides confirmed their intention to try to do their best to overcome the difficulties of the Greek economy as soon as possible," a statement released by the press office quoted Tsipras as saying.

The statement was made public after the special meeting Tsipras attended on Thursday evening with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, European Council President Donald Tusk, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The statement also said that Tsipras was confident that the current liquidity problems of the Greek economy would be resolved soon, as he reassured his interlocutors at the Thursday meeting that his country would not face a cash crunch in March. Endi
