Last-ditch talks pursue Greek deal by today


Speculation about a Greek exit from the eurozone is “exceptionally dangerous,” and such an outcome would have unpredictable consequences, Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said in an interview in Real News.

Whatever the outcome, Athens would not call snap elections or a referendum, Tsipras told his team on Friday, according to a statement from the Greek government.

“If we have a sustainable agreement, however heavy the compromises, we will lift the weight,” Tsipras said. “Our only criteria is exit from the crisis and the memorandum of servitude. [However,] if Europe wants division and a continuation of servitude, we will refuse.”
