    Financial crisis in Greece (197)

    Greece is fulfilling its reforms obligations to its international creditors, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said amid media reports claiming that the country had become uncontrollable.

    ATHENS (Sputnik) – On Sunday, the German media reported that Greece has lost control and the implementation of the reforms had become delayed.

    "Today an official representative of the German government completely denied this publication… But it is impossible to question reality," Tsipras told the ERT television channel on Monday.

    According to the Greek leader, the country is not only fulfilling its obligations, but has also overcome its greatest difficulties.

    The Greek economy has been severely strained for several years, because of the country’s multibillion debt accumulated after the 2008 world economic crisis.

    In July, Greece's international creditors signed an agreement with the country's government, approving a third bailout package for Athens worth 86 billion euros (about $95 billion) in exchange for highly unpopular austerity reforms such as pension cuts and tax hikes.
