European Commission ‘respects’ Greece result, it says in a statement

The European Commission "respects" the result of the Greece bailout referendum, it said in a short statement on Sunday, after Greek voters overwhelmingly rejected terms offered by international creditors.

Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will hold a teleconference on Monday morning with European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi and Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the head of the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers, the statement added.
