Student or Learner
Hello dear teachers,
I would like to know if this use of the word 'meet' in bold part of this following sentence is a lot of used in English.
"The spectre of “Financial Crisis 2” continued to loom over global markets yesterday after Dubai’s revelation that it may not be able to meet its debt obligations". (this an extract from the Timesmonline).
It seems to me special to meet a debt, in my mind we meet someone or somebody but not an intangible stuff as 'debt'. However, your English is indeed better than mine, and I hope some people know what I am looking for.
Thanks four your cooperation, and sorry for my poor English. Do not hesitate to coorect me.
See you later.
