BERLIN - The Associated Press
Germany's chancellor said any new Greek
government must continue to implement the mix of austerity measures and structural reforms that the country has agreed to in exchange for its international bailouts.
Chancellor Angela Merkel
on Monday said Greece
itself must see what coalition government might be feasible following Sunday's parliamentary elections.
Germany says it will work with any democratically elected Greek
government. But Merkel cautions that "of course, the most important thing is that the programs we agreed with Greece
will be continued."
Greece which is deeply mired in recession has agreed to harsh austerity measures and reforms in return for two massive bailouts from European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
