ATHENS, July 6. /TASS/. Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has asked Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos to convene a council of political leaders to develop a joint position at the upcoming talks with international creditors.
Following Sunday’s referendum, the priority now is to strengthen the national unity and form a united front to restore the normal situation in the country’s economy, Tsipras has said.
The prime minister said the proposals of the Greek authorities for the creditors are "realistic and wise" and are aimed at a "fair compromise for the good of the European Union."
Pavlopoulos said the outcome of the referendum gives a signal on enhancing security inside the Eurozone. The plebiscite means that the Greek people authorize the government to reach an agreement with creditors in line with the principles and values of the EU.
The council may be convened later on Monday.
A total of 61.31% of Greeks spoke against the terms of agreement with creditors on Greece’s debt. This is the outcome of Sunday’s referendum announced by the Interior Ministry after 100% of ballots were processed. The terms proposed by the creditors were supported by 38.69% of those who voted.
