Visiting Athens for the first time since the beginning of the Greek crisis, German Chancellor Angela Merkel affirmed that she "wants Greece to remains in the eurozone" but reiterated that no further aid will be paid before the EU/ECB/IMF troika publishes its report on the state of the country's finances and its progress with reforms. "I am now in a better position to understand what is happening in Greece," she said.
