A.P. Moeller-Maersk A/S wants to buy Greece’s two biggest ports after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras put them up for sale in his proposal of budget-enhancing measures submitted to creditors.

“We’re interested in the Greek ports of Piraeus and Thessaloniki and are pursuing them as part of our growth plans,” Francois-Xavier Delenclos, a vice president at Maersk’s The Hague-based APM Terminals unit, said Friday in an e-mailed reply to questions.
