Come in, Mr Prime Minister

Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is expected to arrive in Berlin on August 24, when he will seek to persuade the German Chancellor Angela Merkel to agree a two-year postponement of the deadline for the implementation of the savings plan negotiated with the EU-ECB-IMF troika. The Chancellor has already announced that no decision will be taken before the troika has submitted its report in late September on the ongoing reforms.
