- Story Text: A team of US Treasury officials held talks with Greek government officials on Thursday (February 5) to discuss Greece's economic situation.
The team, led by Daleep Singh, the U.S. Treasury's deputy assistant secretary for Europe and Eurasia, met with Greek deputy prime minister Yannis Dragasakis, and also included US Ambassador to Greece David Pearce.
More meetings with government officials are expected to take place on Saturday (February 7) including with Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis.
The United States will continue working closely with the new government in Greece and other European leaders to resolve differences that could improve Greece's economy, a White House spokesman said last week.
