Merkel Mulls Easing Greece Bailout Terms

According to Bloomberg, two German lawmakers told reporters on Thursday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is considering softening Greek bailout conditions.
CDU’s Klaus-Peter Willsch said in an interview that there is a strong opposition among members of Merkel’s coalition government towards any concessions to Greece, so “the official line is to stay tough” but “at the same time, some are being sent forward to test the waters on how this tough line can be abandoned.”
Free Democratic Party member Frank Schaeffler remarked in a separate interview that the Chancellor will most probably try to reach a compromise with Greek PM Antonis Samaras, making the bailout program more flexible but at the same time as consistent with the initial terms as possible.
Angela Merkel will hold talks with Antonis Samaras in Berlin on August 24.
