Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras asked parliament early Saturday to approve his reform proposals to creditors as a "national responsibility" that would keep the struggling nation inside the European Union.

"It is a choice of high national responsibility, we have a national duty to keep our people alive…we will succeed not only to stay in Europe but to live as equal peers with dignity and pride," Tsipras said.
