Tsipras holds phone call with US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras talked with US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew over the phone on Monday, Tsipras’ office said in a statement, one in a series of talks the two have held on Greece’s debt crisis over the past few weeks.

“The prime minister had a phone conversation with US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew in a particularly good climate,” the statement said.

Lew had said last week that the Greek government must make tough fiscal decisions and quickly reach an agreement with international creditors and fellow members of the eurozone. [Reuters]
