PM Tsipras: Germany isn’t to Blame for Greece’s Problems

Greece’s firebrand far-left leader struck a consolatory note on Monday, saying it wasn’t right to hold foreigners responsible for the country’s problems, and promising to launch “big structural reforms.”

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras spoke at a flagship joint news conference with his German counterpart, Chancellor Angela Merkel, after a summit in Berlin.

“This meeting was very important to better understand each other,” a smiling Tsipras said, according to a Reuters translation of the conference, which was conducted in German and Greek.
