Greek PM meeting with German opposition after Merkel talks

The Associated Press

BERLIN (AP) Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is in Germany for a second day following lengthy meetings with Chancellor Angela Merkel where both leaders sought to mend fences and looked for ways to help Athens reach a deal with bailout creditors.

The two played down differences at a press conference Monday after a one-hour meeting that took place following a marked deterioration in relations between the two countries in recent weeks. They then met for another five hours behind closed doors before finally breaking off talks at around midnight.

Merkel's office said early Tuesday that the talks were conducted in a "good and constructive atmosphere."

Tsipras is set to meet opposition leaders from the Left Party and the Greens on Tuesday, as well as those from Merkel's governing partner Social Democrats.
