Tsipras Holds Talks With US State Department Officials On Greek EEZ

What kind of deals is the leader of Greece's main opposition party SYRIZA Alexis Tsipras making in Washington in regards to Greece's EEZ? No one knows, but the only thing one hopes is that these talks were aimed to benefit Greece, and not foreign interests (as some other progressive former leaders -mostly green socialists- have done in the past). Following his speech at the controversial (and Soros funded) Brookings Institute earlier this week, Alexis Tsipras also apparently held an extensive discussion on a series of issues concerning Greece and the wider region in a meeting at the State Department officials with officials such as the US Assistant Secretary of State, responsible for European affairs, Erik Rubin, the Deputy Finance Minister, responsible for Europe and Eurasia issues, Christopher Smart, as well as other American officials.

Athens reports quoting SYRIZA officials maintain that there were "points of agreement and disagreement", during the discussions and that a "substantive exchange" of views took place on matters relating to the Greek and European economy, Greek foreign policy and (Surprise Surprise) the Exclusive Economic Zone.

On his part, Tsipras outlined his positions on issues such as the spreading of violence in Greece, the ultra-right Golden Dawn party and anti-Semitism. Parallel to this he also presented his views on Greek-Turkish relations, the Cyprus issue and Greece FYROM differences.

The only thing we don't know is what the "other side" outlined.

On Thursday Tsipras would meet with leading IMF officials in New York as well as leading officials in the Greek Omogeneia.
