Greek conservative Samaras insists on euro
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's conservative leader insists it is imperative the country remains in the euro, and says proposals by the radical left party to withdraw from international bailout commitments would lead to "certain and immediate" catastrophe.
Antonis Samaras, who came first in national elections, is to meet Alexis Tsipras later Wednesday as part of the radical Left leader's efforts to form a coalition government after Sunday's elections produced a deadlocked result. If no solution can be found, new elections will have to be held.
On Tuesday, Tsipras said Greece should pull out of the bailout commitments. Samaras says that would see Greece's exit from the euro.
