July 13, 2015

(WASHINGTON, DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation, today made the following statement on the agreement reached in Brussels to tackle Greece’s debt and prevent a Greek exit from the Eurozone:

“I welcome the news that European leaders have reached an agreement that sets out a path to resolve the crisis over Greece's debt. No agreement is perfect, but one that holds out the prospect for a stable Greece within a resilient Eurozone deserves support. I urge the relevant institutions that must approve or implement this agreement to do so quickly so that European leaders can begin taking steps to rebuild the Greek economy and European unity.”
