President telephones Juncker, Tsipras

President Nicos Anastasiades had telephone conversations with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker late Tuesday in an effort to mediate a resolution of the stand-off between Greece and its Eurozone partners, government sources said.

In a statement, the government said Anastasiades discussed “issues relating to the ongoing dialogue in search of an agreement for Greece”.

“President Anastasiades had today a long telephone communication with the Greek Prime Minister Mr Alexis Tsipras and, following an understanding between them, President Anastasiades later on had a telephone communication with the President of the European Commission Mr Jean-Claude Juncker,” a statement by government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said.

However, the sources said, although Tsipras said he was “fully aware of the risks”, he appeared unwilling to budge from his publicly-stated positions.
