erman Chancellor Angela Merkel made her first visit to Greece since the euro crisis began three years ago, and she was greeted by tens of thousands of protesters chanting anti-austerity slogans and waving swastika flags. Greeks blame Merkel for imposing "draconian budget cuts in exchange for aid." Though she offered sympathy, Merkel did not promise any further aid, but reaffirmed her commitment to keep debt-riddled Greece inside Europe's single currency. "I have come here today in full knowledge that the period Greece is living through right now is an extremely difficult one," she said at news conference with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.
