BERLIN – The German government doesn’t comment on the Greek Prime Minister’s visit to Moscow, Deputy Spokeswoman of the German Chancellery Christine Wirtz said on Friday.
“From the position I am now, I cannot comment on the visit of a foreign leader to another country,” Wirtz said in reply to a question and added that Berlin was “not upset” by it.
She also noted that Germany wants to have good relations with Russia.
“The important thing is the position of the Greek government towards the EU concerning the agreements for the second aid package,” she said.
Asked whether Berlin is relieved that Greece repaid its IMF debt instalment in time, Wirtz said: “The German government notes that Greece is fulfilling and fulfilled its payment obligations. I cannot estimate from this position what the situation will be with its future obligations. It is of course an important sign that Greece has the will and is able to continue this process and arrive at a good result so that the aid can reach where it is needed.”
