Tsipras: Tough Times for Greece ahead, but Not Impossible to Manage (Video)

ATHENS — SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said that Monday's annual assembly of the Ηellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV), where he spoke, comes "at an unprecedented time for both Greece and the entire world."

The coronavirus pandemic forced citizens to "lock themselves in their homes while the economy froze," he added. Considering what comes next against a potential second outbreak "is a very difficult equation, but not unsolvable," he noted.
