Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Sunday that the 'No' victory in the country's bailout referendum did not mean Athens was headed for a so-called Grexit.

"This is not a mandate of rupture with Europe, but a mandate that bolsters our negotiating strength to achieve a viable deal," he said in a televised address.

Tsipras said the 'No' camp's triumph meant creditors would be forced to address the question of easing the country's massive debt.

"This time, the debt will be on the negotiating table," he said in a televised address, insisting that an International Monetary Fund report seen this week "confirms Greek views that restructuring the debt is necessary".
