Debate on Greek crisis; EU-US trade talks boost; Backing for Carbon Emissions Trading

In a fierce debate on the Greek crisis, the EPP Group accused Greek Prime Minister Tsipras of lying to his people that European taxpayers won't pay billions for a Greek debt haircut. The Parliament finally approved guidelines for the EU-US trade talks, with an investor claims system to be revised.
