Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras vowed Friday to "start working hard" to implement vital reforms in the stricken eurozone country, after Germany’s parliament approved a four-month extension to its bailout.

"The German parliament gave Europe a vote of confidence today," Tsipras told Euronews in an interview. "Europe has now recognised that Greece has turned a new page ... We start working hard, in order to change Greece within a Europe that changes direction."
