President Barack Obama on Monday urged European leaders to help Greece out of its debt crisis.
Obama called French President François Hollande Monday to discuss the crisis between Greece and the Eurogroup about extending its bailout program after the Eurogroup's rejected an offer to extend Greece's bailout.
According to the White House, Obama indicated to Hollande that the parties should remain at the table "to develop a package of reforms and financing that would allow Greece to return to growth and debt sustainability within the eurozone."
Obama’s call follows a similar with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the weekend.
Greece’s government heads toward a referendum on July 5 on whether to accept bailout terms proposed by the Eurogroup and its other European creditors.
