Greek president presses Germany's Gauck on WWII

Published: 03.06.14, 18:47 / Israel News

ATHENS - Greece's president has called for talks as soon as possible with Berlin on long-rejected Greek claims for wartime reparations, during a meeting with his German counterpart.


Karolos Papoulias insisted at a joint news conference Thursday that Greece has never dropped its claims to reparations for the brutal 1941-44 German occupation during World War II. But German President Joachim Gauck stuck to Berlin's longstanding argument that the issue has been settled. (AP)
