The euro zone faced further pressure yesterday as Greece struggled to convince international backers that it is on its way to implementing a crucial international bailout package to save it from bankruptcy and as several other European countries faced new setbacks. […]

"He will be in a difficult position to convince people in Greece. At the same time, he will have to deliver a speech that sounds convincing to people outside Greece."

"The fact they got together a government of unity is already a positive sign that was necessary, that is the key," he added.
