ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE, April 28 U.S. President
Barack Obama is concerned about Greece's debt problems and his
administration is in touch with Europe about the issue, White
House spokesman Bill Burton said on Wednesday.
"This is something that is of great concern to the
president and we're monitoring it very closely," Burton told
reporters on Air Force One, adding that the U.S. Treasury
Department and other agencies were "in close contact with folks
in Europe about the issue."
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said earlier on Wednesday
negotiations with Greece over a planned aid package for the
country should be accelerated because the stability of the euro
zone was at stake.
