Obama: Greek Debt Crisis Has Eased but More Work Still Needed


U.S. President Barack Obama said that the Greek debt crisis has “eased” during his meeting with reporters on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Shima, central Japan. “The fact that the Greek debt crisis has been resolved for a reasonable length of time should help,” he said. “But we all have got a lot of work to do and we will continue.”

Obama also made other comments on Thursday. He criticized Republic presidential candidate Donald Trump’s policy ideas as demonstrating “ignorance” in global affairs. The president also referred to North Korea, stating that the country was a “big worry for all of us.”
