German FM says Greek referendum result ‘must be accepted’


The Greek referendum result has to be accepted, and the ball is now in Athens' court for the next steps, Germany's foreign minister said Sunday.

"We have now to accept such a result, it is the result of a referendum which the Greek people took part. What conclusions can be made is first and foremost a decision for Greece, therefore the ball is now in Athens' court," Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in Vienna.
