Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has called on leaders to avoid division in Europe as the country battles to stay in the euro.
Speaking at a debate in the European Parliament today, Tsipras said: “Let’s not let Europe be divided”.
He has until the end of the day on Thursday to submit new proposals in order to reach an agreement with Greece’s creditors, before a full European Union summit on Sunday.
He insisted that he was working on these plans, without providing further details.
Tsipras expressed confidence that his government would meet “its obligations in the interests of Greece and the eurozone” in the coming days.
