US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Tuesday that the US was continuing to encourage the IMF to discuss its participation in the Greek program.

Steven Mnuchin gave an interview to the Financial Times where he stated that the Trump Administration thinks that the Greek program “is primarily a European issue, although it is something we are monitoring because it is important to the world economy and world financial markets,” adding that he was hopeful a resolution to the “Greece situation” would come in the “near future”.

Treasury Secretary’s remarks on Greece follow comments made last week by a US Treasury official who said that the Trump Administration is “looking for the Europeans to help Greece to resolve its economic problems,” adding that the Administration thinks that “the IMF can play a supportive role” and will look at “any potential future agreement with an open mind.”
