Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Saturday that he sought no rift with Europe after his cash-strapped country submitted a list of reforms to its lenders in a bid to secure much-needed funds.
Tsipras’ leftist government agreed an extension to its 240-million euro bailout fund in February, albeit with aid frozen, and now must agree on a set of reforms which it sent to its EU-IMF creditors on Friday in order to stave off bankruptcy.
The austerity-weary nation will run out of money by April 20, a source told Reuters on Tuesday, if it does not unlock much-needed funding. “The liquidity problem is naturally hampering the situation but I believe that will be tackled immediately once we reach an agreement over reforms,” Tsipras said in an interview with Sunday’s Real News newspaper.
