Tsipras to meet Juncker on sidelines of refugee summit in Brussels

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will be holding a private meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels on Wednesday, Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said on Tuesday.

The meeting, to be held on the sidelines of a European Union leaders’ summit on the growing refugee crisis, was scheduled after the two men spoke on the telephone on Monday, following Tsipras’s re-election.
