Tsipras says deal with creditors hinges on debt relief

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Sunday that “significant steps” would be needed on reducing his country’s debt in order for Athens to finalize a long-delayed deal with its international creditors. “The deal’s closure and the vote on measures (demanded by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund) will happen… on the condition that there be significant steps in the meantime on (reducing) debt,” Tsipras told the Greek daily Ethnos in an interview published Sunday. Negotiations between Athens and its eurozone and IMF creditors have dragged on for months over disagreements on debt relief and budget targets for the country.
