Earlier in February while speaking in front of his party’s central committee, Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tspiras sent some choice comments to the German Finance Minister. He said he wasn’t pleased with the “constant aggressiveness” against Greece and his “contemptuous remarks” toward the Greek people.
He also took a shot at the International Monetary Fund, as he put it, for not telling the EU the truth about the requirements for an economic recovery for his country. After many bailouts, Greece is now looking for a another.
