Tsipras remained steadfast in his controversial plan to hold a referendum on the bailout demands of creditors, as eurozone finance ministers discussed a request from Athens for new financial aid. During the televized address to the nation Tsipras said that anyone equating a no-vote with a return to the drachma is 'telling lies,' and repeated his call for people to vote against the measures.
