17th June 2011, Comments 0 comments

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy made a joint call on Friday for a new rescue package for debt-ridden Greece to be agreed upon as quickly as possible.

"We need a solution as soon as possible so that we have clarity ... We have been talking about this for the whole of May and June, discussing the same issues again and again without resolving them," Merkel said.

"Germany and France are determined at the upcoming EU summit ... to say that we want a quick solution," Merkel told reporters in Berlin after talks with Sarkozy.
