Merkel Tsipras

In a bid to defuse mounting Greek-German tensions, Chancellor Angela Merkel invited Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to Berlin for his first official visit to Germany.

Government spokesman Steffen Seibert confirmed via Twitter on Monday that Tsipras had accepted the invitation for Monday March 23rd.

Tensions have been high between the two countries ever since a temporary extension to Greece’s bailout terms was agreed at the end of February, with German MPs voting massively in favor.
