Merkel Ally Meister Rules Out More Aid for Greece, FAS Reports

July 28, 2012

Greece shouldn’t get additional financial aid, according to Michael Meister, the deputy leader in parliament of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung reported.

Greece’s problem is its government’s inability to carry out domestic changes, the newspaper cited Meister as saying in an interview. While advising against Greece being forced to exit the euro region, Meister called it “very difficult” to rebuild the country’s ability to pay its bills, FAS reported in a preview of an article for tomorrow’s edition.
