Tsipras to participate in EU summit, Riga

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is visiting Riga, Latvia, on Thursday and Friday to participate in the 4th Eastern Partnership summit.

On the sidelines of the summit, Mr. Tsipras will meet today with German Chancellor Mrs. Merkel and French President Mr. Hollande and other European leaders and officials. The working luncheon has been scheduled for 20.00.

During the informal working dinner at 20:00 Athens time, Mr. Tsipras will present Greece’s serious liquidity problems and ask for a political solution to the debt issue by the end of May or early June.

Furthermore, Mr. Tsipras is expected to ask for a single comprehensive agreement (that will include the current programme review but also a new arrangement as well as debt restructuring and growth initiatives) instead of a partial deal that may lead to partial disbursements (i.e. a short-term financial breather).

Tsipras is accompanied by State Minister Nikos Pappas, Alternate Minister for International Economic Relations Euclid Tsakalotos, government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis, his diplomatic adviser Vangelis Kalpadakis and the managing director of his press office Thodoris Mihopoulos.
