"The Greek people made a historic and brave choice. Their response will alter the existing dialogue in Europe," Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said, "Our immediate priority is to restore our banking system's functioning and economic stability. The issue of our debt will now be on the negotiating table, in light of the IMF's recent report on its sustainability. "

 2 yrs   Greece repays 4.2 billion euros to European Central Bank

              Greece has repaid the European Central Bank (ECB) about €4.2 billion ($4.5 billion), avoiding a potential cut in emergency lending to Greek banks. "The ECB confirms it has been repaid," an ECB spokesperson said in an emailed statement. Greece had to repay a €3.5 billion ($3.8 billion) bond and €700 million ($759 million) in interest to the ECB to avoid a possible cut. The payment follows a €2 billion ($2.17 billion) payment earlier today to clear Greece's arrears at the IMF. Both payments were made possible thanks to a 7.16 billion euros ($7.77 billion) short-term loan approved by the European Union on Friday.
