Greece, Germany Seek Financial Solution
It’s a question of debt. Angela Merkel, perhaps fearing that Greece’s financial woes will force it out of the Eurozone, has been meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. He needs money, but says he’s not in Germany to “beg.” Merkel has demurred on questions of her own negotiating power, saying all EU countries are equally important, but she could likely broker the deal. Meanwhile, Greece is pressing the question of reparations for German war crimes in WWII, which may play a symbolic part in the negotiations.
