Greece’s Tsipras: We Want Euro, but Not Austerity

By Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Jennifer Leigh Parker

May 10 (CNBC) — The head of Greece’s Radical Left Coalition, Alexis Tsipras, told CNBC Thursday that he will “go as far as I can” to keep Greece in the euro zone, despite declaring earlier this week that the Greek bailout agreement is “null and void” and should be abandoned.

Tsipras (pronounced SEE-Pras), who was unable to form a coalition government this week after his party came second in Sunday’s election, said a Greek exit from the euro zone would be “disastrous.”

Tsipras said he is willing to negotiate with the so-called troika — the International Monetary Fund , the European Union, and theEuropean Central Bank — to keep Greece in the euro zone.
