Both sides have rightly been animated by the conviction that cooperation would lead to a better outcome than confrontation. (Read more)

When you Prime Minster Alexis Tsipras came to the European Parliament last Wednesday and joined us for a public debate in the plenary no one could have imagined such a dramatic escalation in only a couple of days.
