"This debate is not exclusively about one country," said the Greece's
left-wing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in a speech to the European
Parliament on July 8. "It is about the future of our common construction."

Tsipras called for the eurozone to reach a deal with sustainable solutions
to the Greek crisis, saying the “austerity laboratory” that Greece has
become has been a failure for the country’s people.
