Tsipras: Greece on the final stretch before exiting memoranda

Greece is now on the final stretch to achieving the goal that brought the government to power; an exit from strict surveillance and the end of the memoranda, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Tuesday during his opening speech at the cabinet meeting.

He stressed the need for the government to not lose focus of the target and not become complacent, noting that the “last few metres of the course” will be the most difficult.

“Do not forget that this government was formed by parties with different ideological starting points but with a common central political objective: a safe and final exit from the memorandums and suffocating surveillance, the recovery of our economic sovereignty,” the prime minister stressed.
