Greece demands reparations from Germany for World War II

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias demanded that Germany pays billions of dollars in reparations for World War II. Germany, in its turn, requires Greece to repay debts to European creditors.

During his visit to Berlin, Foreign Minister of Greece Nikos Kotzias addressed to his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier with the requirement to pay billions of dollars in reparations for the damage caused during World War II, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.

Steinmeier rejected these claims and said that all the problems concerning reparations had already been resolved in the legal order. German Foreign Minister also asked whether Greece expected to resolve its debt crisis through financial assistance from Russia. Kotzias replied evasively and said that Greece was looking for "European solution".
