预计希腊总理萨马拉斯星期五在柏林会晤德国总理默克尔时,将要求给予希腊更多时间来施行重要改革和削减开支,争取让陷于经济衰退的希腊留在欧元区。

萨马拉斯本星期早些时候对德国报纸说,希腊并不寻求从其国际债权人那里得到更多贷款。他表示,希腊只希望得到更多一点时间来削减开支并实行改革,以振兴经济和增加收入。

但德国财政部长朔伊布勒本星期对德国广播电台说,更多时间就意味着更多金钱。

星期六,萨马拉斯将前往巴黎,会晤法国总统奥朗德。

Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is expected to ask for more time to make key reforms and spending cuts to keep his recession-plagued country in the eurozone when he meets Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.  

Mr. Samaras told the German newspaper Bild earlier this week that Greece is not seeking more money from its international creditors.  He said Greece only wants a little more time to make spending cuts and reforms that would revive its economy and boost income.

However, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told German radio this week that more time would mean more money.

Mr. Samaras will take his diplomatic bid to Paris on Saturday for a meeting with French President Francois Hollande.
