Greek Parliament Approved the Third Bailout Deal

After the all-night session, the Parliament of Greece approved the terms of the third multi-billion dollar bailout deal with its international creditors, BBC reports.

Earlier, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras urged deputies to support the agreement, calling it “a necessary step” for the nation.

The Greek authorities rely on the fact that by adopting the program of assistance of the Greek economy, they will be able to access the funds necessary for the payment of the debt by the ECB. The amount of the proposed aid to Greece is 85 billion euros (94.8 billion dollars).
