Brussels, March 13: Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, speaking about his country’s debt crisis, said on Friday that “there is no Greek problem, there is a European problem”, noting that Athens is meeting its commitments. He asked European partners for solidarity. “We are doing our part and we expect our partners to do their own,” Efe news agency quoted Tsipras as saying following his meeting with Speaker of the European Parliament (EP) Martin Schulz who noted that more dialogue was needed between Greece and the other member states and institutions of the European Union (EU). “Greece has already started fulfilling its commitments mentioned in the Eurogroup decision of February 20,” said Tsipras, adding, “I’m very optimistic that we will find a solution because I strongly believe that this is in our common interest.” The Eurozone decisions lend themselves to different views and interpretations which lead to tensions, said Schulz, who noted that he has advised the Greek prime minister to try to resolve tensions in the following days in Brussels. He also considered it necessary to resolve outstanding “problems”. Schulz stressed that these were “difficult times”, and noted that he spoke with Tsipras about what could be done to solve immediate and long term problems, with a focus on generating growth and jobs.
