The time for negotiating was over and it was now time for decisions on the Greek issue, European Council President Donald Tusk said here on Thursday, in a joint press conference with European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker after the end of the EU-CELAC summit.
“It is very obvious that we need decisions, not negotiations,” Tusk said, and called on the Greek government to be “a little more realistic”.
“There is no more time for gambling. The day is coming, I’m afraid, that someone says that the game is over.”
Tusk stressed that the next Eurogroup on June 18 will be really crucial and of decisive importance for Greece, stressing that there was no more time.
Juncker, on his part, referred to his meeting with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday night and the “good relations” between them, and that he will be meeting with Tsipras again after the press conference.
