By Lefteris Karagiannopoulos and George Georgiopoulos ATHENS (Reuters) - Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras rejected European warnings that Greeks will be deciding on their future in the euro zone in a referendum on Sunday, saying negotiations would continue for a better deal with international creditors after the vote.
