The English edition of the Greek daily Kathimerini reveals the United States advised the SYRIZA-Independent Greeks government in the months that preceded the agreement of July 13 on a third bailout.

Washington was interested in keeping Greece in the eurozone and advised Athens to avoid attacks on Germany and to try to create an alliance including the UK, France, Italy and Austria by convincing those countries that it was serious about implementing reforms in exchange for their support.
