Greek PM defends pension and tax reform


Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has defended controversial new pension and tax reforms approved by parliament. The measures are needed to unlock further international bailout money, to be discussed at a meeting of eurozone finance ministers on Monday.
But they are deeply unpopular with Greek anti-austerity campaigners and trade unions.
Mr Tsipras said the changes would not affect the majority of pensioners and moved towards a “sustainable” system.
