U.S. Urges Greece to Work “Closely” with European Commission and IMF

WASHINGTON – United States National Security Advisor Susan Rice urged Greece to work “closely” with the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund, or IMF, to delineate Greece’s path to economic reform.

U.S. National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan in a statement on Wednesday referred to a meeting between Rice and Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias which dealt with economic and security issues in Europe and the Middle East.

“Ambassador Rice encouraged the minister to work closely with European and IMF partners to agree on a concrete set of reforms that will set Greece on a sustainable path to growth within the Eurozone,” Meehan said.

Tensions between Greece and its international creditors have increased recently as differences emerged between the European Union and Athens over ongoing negotiations.

Disagreement centers around a list of reforms made mandatory for Greece to receive a new tranche of funding under an international bail-out.

On security, Rice and Kotzias agreed that “full implementation” of the Minsk ceasefire agreement “is essential” to resolve the situation in eastern Ukraine.

Kotzias is currently on an official tour of the United States and on Monday met with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
