difference in the lives of ordinary americans, are we going to give them more opportunity so that if they work hard, they can get ahead? are we going to make this a more inclusive economy, a more inclusive society, a more fair, just society? if that is our north star and we keep the heading in that direction, we will make progress. i feel pretty excited about it. i might see it can make next week even better. -- if we can make next week even better. i love press conferences. my team is always holding me back. [laughter] i want to talk to you guys every day. [laughter] sorry, josh.
>> we take the issue very seriously. securityhe question of . seriously. -- very seriously. it involves all those bodies and forces and the armed all of the state level police. experiencehave because last year, we organized the world soccer cup and we have to provide security, natalie just one city, but the whole country. -- not only to one city, but the whole country. thereby, establishing a very , asctive control system
well as monitoring, control ,enters monitoring all activity andplacement of athletes high-ranking government officials. if we ensure proper security , that iss to all those why i am certain we will be in a position to ensure absolute security, just as was the case during last year's world soccer cup. i actually believe the upcoming 2016 olympics will be a unique and special occasion because it will bring together the brazilians and the beauty of rio.
is the rio de janeiro world's most beautiful city. the olympics will bring together excellent organizational -- all of those who wish to come have been invitation -- have an invitation. i will now call upon our daily newspaper reporters for the second question. being sued by mary american investors who lost billions of because of allegations of corruption. --it an issue of concern
president obama: i make it a policy not to comment on active that are working through the justice system. partly because people here in the united states know that the lawyers work for me and i want to make sure we -- i'm not familiar with all the details of the case, so i will declined to comment on the specifics. i will make a general statement that i have had the opportunity to work with president rousseff on the open government initiative we've been trying to mobilize internationally. brazil has been a great proctor -- partner in that process.
the more we can create accountability and transparency in our government systems, the better off we will be. that takes work, takes time. brazil has been a strong partner with us in that process. i hope both countries can continue to make progress on that front. rousseff: i would like ishighlight that petrobras indeed one of the major oil-producing and oil exporting companies. it has more than 60,000 employees. some employees did engage in acts of corruption. therefore, the investigation is beingoing on
handled by the prosecutor's office and they are being sued by that office. the circumstantial evidence that is available from the prosecutor's are pretty substantial. that areegal measures being taken against petrobras will have to take into account wereacts of corruption practiced within petrobras, but it's not 100% of the company. did practice acts of corruption should be held accountable and be punished. the people who actually engaged in these acts of corruption should be punished. the good news about petrobras, it's a strong company, their well-managed today with proper government processes and
compliance processes. case, hownot the --ld you possibly understand this year, it was awarded the so-called oscar of the oil industry.oil and gas the innovation award was granted to them this year. is on corporation that full blast, a strong operational company. in regards to your second question, i have never appointed nor have i dismissed ministers dismissed by been the press. the event will be properly looked into undisclosed.
in principle, i think it is important and necessary that all access to the same information. the brazilian government does not have access to the court records. strangely enough, there was this selective leakage of information, those allegedly stemming from the court records. have noo are accused way of defending themselves because we don't know exactly what they are being charged. country marked by democratic process. all the arbitrary arrangements and violation of rights -- we record,iven our track we should stick with the principle of sentencing once evidence is available, not the other way around.
accuse should provide evidence of guilt. this is what we talk about when we talk about democracy. people's rights. the burden of proof lies with the accusing party. that's what we do in brazil today. i had a chance: to do the rose garden celebration of the court decision around same-sex marriage. i did not have a chance to comment on how good the white house looked in rainbow colors. week.ade it a really good to see people gathered outside
on a beautiful summer night and to feel whole and to feel feel that they had a right to love, that was pretty cool. that was a good thing. that was a good thing. the only bad part about it, i could not go out and peek at it myself because i would've had to clear out the people. i could only reflect on it from a television screen. thank you very much, everybody. president in the east room of the white house with president rousseff. with me are phil mattingly -- i want to ask you to start here, they went through questions to
both presidents. iran,alked about brazil-u.s. relations, greece. reflecting on last week, had he not only answer the question, but then came back around and brought it up again to close the press conference. what did you make of that? president obama coming back to the question he already answered once to reenter it again or extend his remarks. >> we can keep doing this for a long time. he was cool, confident, funny. i had a great week when i scored 27 points. he made serious points and then came back to the end to talk about the important societal gains. theought it was maybe not victory lap we spoke about. it was a clear victory lap.
reassuringng to be on the greek crisis. kept his position on iran. i thought you would be fascinated by the microeconomic risk issues. i guess you can get to those later. >> i will go to phil mattingly now. todayesident announced that he would like to hold a press briefing every day for the rest of his time in office. and then tossed josh earnest under the bus. how do you feel the white house will feel about that? of backgroundlot quotes coming from senior administration officials about the president lying to the media. the president does not really
like the media. his press team has to force them and out. -- force him out. i was talking to former press staffers -- had they still been here, the president would have never had the guts to make that statement at all. he might have to apologize to josh earnest. >> thank you and thank you to al hunt. seeing thent saying white house and those rainbow hues was "pretty cool." we will have more on bloomberg politics.com and tonight on "with all due respect." matt: looking forward to your further coverage. it was john heilman and al hunt and phil mattingly. i want to get you caught up on the top news stories of this hour. greece asks for a new bailout program just hours before the

the eurozone unwilling to engage in the kinds of negotiations he wants. he wants a relaxation of the demands they are making for continued austerity. in exchange for further credit. this last-ditch attempt to request a new bailout from the esm doesn't appear to be going anywhere. the head of the eurozone finance ministers says it will be considered a meeting that is beginning right now -- angela merkel has indicated it's a nonstarter. she will not consider anything that-- mark: the referendum on sunday, do we have a sense where that might be headed? alexis tsipras has encouraged his people to vote no. : it is hard to call it right now. you talk to a democratic pollster and they will tell you that the winds are blowing at fair and the democrats give you
the opposite point of view. that's what i hear on the grounds here in greece. i spoke to some opposition politicians here who say there is a ground -- in favor of the yes vote. in favor of staying inside the favor of the in proposals the europeans have made to the greeks for a new bailout package, not the one that alexis tsipras is asking for right now. the one he asks for today comes with no conditions. he wants the money for two years , he wants to renegotiate the debt, he doesn't want to offer anything in the way of fiscal reform. the package that is on the table is the one the european commission put on the table on saturday. that would require greece to make pension reforms, labor .eforms

to get a deal before the weekend. the government has heavily no.aigned for a making a u-turn requires creditors to give concessions that the prime minister could sell to the population in victory. i don't think the concessions will come. whatever the deal we are going to have, it will be a kick the can measure. greek debt is unsustainable in the long run. we will not get any deal if there is a no and the negotiations -- the referendum is very key this weekend. have discussed the greek debt crisis for a number of years now. we found a couple of statistics that are startling. youthof greece's unemployed at this moment.
corruption caused -- cost greece up to 10% of gdp annually. can any amount of help from greece's creditors help to turn the situation around? archimedes: i think it can. the programs between greece and the european union always have two parts. one was the physical part, eliminating -- the other was the reforms pak. competitionpening -- reducing corruption, reducing -- making sure you collect all the taxes and so on. unfortunately, this last part was never seriously implemented because various groups protested against it. these groups were typically very small, like 5000 people get the benefit from a certain measure and they managed to keep that
forever. unfortunately, this has not happened, but it has to happen. coming back to the major issue, i think the vast majority of greeks preferred the euro. no matter how strong the campaign of the government is most greeks will vote yes. and then we will have to see what the government will emerge and howe referendum that government will be able to deal with the europeans and make any treaty. fundnternational monetary was always a secondary player in this group of creditors trying to deal with the situation from greece. what kind of role isn't going to play now and will be imf's reputation take a hit because of this? >> the imf is keen to get out of greece. they have been lending a lot of money to greece, more than other countries in emerging markets

if greece does exit the euro, will there be a bank run? archimedes: of course. there is already a bank run going on. on tuesday, the banks will reopen. it's a pure lie. there is no money for the banks to be open. unless people vote yes and unless there is a new deal, the banks will have no money to get out and it's extremely unlikely that there will -- they will reopen next week. i hope we have a deal and the banks reopen and we get to a more stable situation with growth and prosperity for greece again in the future. mark: gentlemen, thank you. still ahead, sony surprise. the company makes plans for its first share sale in 26 years. ♪
