“Greece is part of the eurozone and I would like it to remain in the eurozone,” Merkel said during a press conference with Greece’s Prime Minister.
Merkel noted that she and France’s Francois Hollande, whom she met Thursday, have taken the same approach with respect to Athens. “We both want Athens to remain in the euro but we also told you that you must comply with the commitments”.
“Greece will stick to its commitments and fulfil its obligations. In fact this is already happening,” replied Antonis Samaras.
