WASHINGTON, D.C. – European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso issued the following joint statement on the result of the Greek elections:

The Greek people have spoken. We fully respect their democratic choice. We are hopeful that the election results will allow a government to be formed quickly.

Today, we salute the courage and resilience of the Greek citizens, fully aware of the sacrifices which are demanded from them to redress the Greek economy and build new, sustainable growth for the country.

We will continue to stand by Greece as a member of the EU family and of the Euro area. We look forward to working with the new government and to support the continued efforts of Greece to put its economy on a sustainable path.

The second economic adjustment program agreed between Greece and the Eurogroup is the basis upon which to build to foster growth, prosperity and jobs for the Greek people. We stand ready to continue assisting Greece in achieving these goals.
