comment Can auffordern (etc.) + an infinitive serve to introduce a stretch of indirect speech?
In all cases the reporter quotes Tsipras but in the example given they obviously suggest that that there is no doubt that what he said will be done, hence they may have chosen the more direct binding character. But that's just hypothetical - we can't read the minds of the journalists involved.

Strict grammar is put indirect speech in subjunctive mood. But the reality is different. There is more than grammar rules to writing, especially in magazines such as Spiegel.

comment How to say ''I like you'' with gefallen?
@amazinggrace160: don't worry, it's perfectly fine to ask anything you have issues with, or are curious how we express things in German. We can help you best if you did some research already, consulted your dictionary, or tried for yourself to find out. If you then get stuck you may find it easy to write a question about the issue you had. I am confident people will then give you a hand, direct you to resources you may have not heard before, or just give you a good answer. I do hope you continue to contribute here.
