Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is bringing forward new bailout proposals today – just days after the Greek public rejected strict terms offered by Europe.

It’s understood his plan includes a demand for Greece’s 320 billion euro debt to be cut by up to 30 per cent – however, Germany has warned there will be no unconditional write-off.

Finance Minister Michael Noonan says he hopes a solution can be found – and has denied Ireland is being ‘tough’ on Greece.
