Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Sunday contacted German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on the telephone to discuss the refugee crisis and the ongoing talks on Greece’s programme.

According to an announcement issued by the Greek prime minister’s press office, Tsipras informed them about his upcoming visit to Turkey and analysed the Greek government’s proposals for protecting the first homes of debtors from foreclosures. He argued that the

Greek position on foreclosure auctions was compatible with the agreement struck between Greece and its Eurozone partners last July, as well as the need to protect social cohesion.

Regarding the visit to Turkey, the three foreign officials welcomed Tsipras’ initiative as part of broader planning by the European partners to cooperate with Turkey on the basis of international law, aimed at a more effective management of the refugee and migration issue and particularly the fight against trafficking networks.
