Juncker wants Tsipras to explain the Greek vote - Slams Varoufakis (VIDEO)

While speaking before the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker urged all sides to come to an agreement with Greece. He said that the result of the referendum in Greece must be clarified, since Greek citizens voted "NO" to a document that was not on the negotiating table, and which did not reflect the text debated during the negotiations.

He also criticized the previous SYRIZA negotiating team (under Yianis Varoufakis) of braking off talks, and slammed the statements by Varoufakis, who accused the EC of “terrorizing” the Greek government.

Juncker stressed that he is against a ‘Grexit, but revealed that there are many forces in Europe who are so frustrated with everything that has happened over the last few months that they are now actually supporting this idea. He nonetheless supported the opinion that the role of the European Commission is urge all sides -even those who want a Grexit- to come to some sort of a compromise. He said that the negotiations will continue, with respect to the vote of the Greek people, but underlined that at the moment the ball is in Greece’s court.
