Schulz says he's willing to visit Greece ahead of referendum

The president of the European Union's parliament says he is willing to go to Greece and campaign ahead of the referendum there to convince the Greeks to vote for a bailout proposal that creditors have made. The Greek government has advised people to reject it.

Martin Schulz says that «as a convinced European I will run and I will fight to convince the Greek people to take that stretched hand of the Europeans and to stay in the eurozone."

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker had made a similar call on the Greeks to vote against their government's advice.
