Prime Minister George Papandreou on Tuesday had a half-hour meeting with Parliament President Philippos Petsalnikos to discuss the latest political developments in Germany and their repercussions for the debt crisis in Greece.
The meeting, held at the prime minister's office, was requested by Petsalnikos in order to brief Papandreou on the results of a round of contacts that he had with German MPs and other officials ahead of an official visit to Berlin by the prime minister.
On Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m. Petsalnikos is scheduled to meet 32 German reporters currently in Greece in order to brief them on the country's financial state and its political aspects so that they can convey an accurate picture back to Germany.
