In a telephone conversation with Yanis Varoufakis, the US Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, reportedly stressed the need for an immediate agreement between Greece and partners.

Otherwise, “Greece will face great difficulties”, Liu reportedly said.

The US will continue to cooperate with all sides in order to make progress and to resolve the Greek issue in the coming days, Liu said, according to Reuters.

In the contact with the Greek minister, “he urged Greece to find a constructive way to move forward, in cooperation with Europe and the IMF”, said an official of the US Treasury Department.
