Europe Weekly: Tsipras seeks Greek debt deal

Text size Aa Aa

Greece’s debt crisis has been dominating debate in Europe this week.

Fresh from taking office, leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has been visiting EU capitals, as he looks to renegotiate a deal for the country’s 320 billion euro deficit.
