kerrySecretary of State John Kerry told Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras that the United States wants to help Greece come out of the economic crisis.
“I appreciate the way in which you have been approaching the economic reform effort and the challenges of the debt,” Kerry told Tsipras at the beginning of their meeting at Maximos Mansion. “It’s not easy, and we want to try to be as helpful as we can to see Greece come out of this,” he said.
