Merkel, Hollande to Determine Europe Response to Greek ‘No’

Updated on

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will travel to Paris on Monday for talks with French President Francois Hollande to map out the way forward for Greece after voters upended more than five years of crisis-fighting by rejecting creditors’ terms for rescue aid.

The trip, announced Sunday shortly after polls closed in Greece, is “to jointly assess the situation after the Greek referendum and to address the continuation of Franco-German close cooperation in this matter,” the chancellery in Berlin and the Elysee in Paris said in separate e-mails. They will meet at 6.30 p.m. followed by a working dinner.
