The euro and the pound firmed against their major counterparts in the European session on Monday, as U.S. debt ceiling jitters eased following President Joe Biden's remarks that he is hopeful of reaching a deal to raise the borrowing limit.

Biden, who is planning to meet with congressional leaders on Tuesday, said he remained optimistic about an eventual agreement on raising the government's $31.4 trillion borrowing limit.

Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo said on Sunday that the two sides are engaged in constructive talks.

Lael Brainard, a former Federal Reserve vice chair, told CBS on Sunday that debt-ceiling negotiations are ongoing in a constructive manner.

The leaders are planning to meet on Tuesday after "productive" staff-level discussions over the weekend.
