South China Morning Post deals with Spanish-Greek misunderstanding

scmpCurrent tensions between Greece and Spain have been an issue of interest for South China Morning Post. As the newspaper reports Spain’s centre-right Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy hit back against accusations from Greece’s leftist premier that Spain and Portugal had led a conservative conspiracy to topple his anti-austerity government. According to South China Morning Post, this stance has come as a result of Mr Tsipras’ comment that Spain and Portugal had taken a hard line in talks on the euro zone extending the Greek bailout programme because they feared the rise of the left in their own countries.
