Merkel, Obama to discuss Greece in Hanover


Greece is expected to be among the topics on the agenda of talks on Sunday when US President Barack Obama is to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Hanover.

Obama is traveling to Germany to join Merkel for the launch of the Hanover Messe, a major global trade fair for industrial technology.

A German government spokesman did not confirm that Greece will be on the agenda, noting that issues relating to the global economy, the Eurozone and Syria will be among the matters up for discussion.

Europe's response to the refugee crisis, of which Greece finds itself at the forefront, is also expected to be discussed, along with the country's progress in meeting its commitments to its third international bailout.
