Merkel to meet Hollande to discuss Greek debt crisis

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will travel to France on Monday for a meeting with French President Francois Hollande to discuss the Greek debt crisis, said a spokesman of the German government on Sunday.

According to spokesman Steffen Seibert, Merkel is due to travel to France on Monday afternoon. "A joint assessment of the situation after the Greek referendum" will be one of the issues of her talks with Hollande.

The plan for the crisis meeting between the two European leaders was announced just a few minutes after first survey results showing a slight lead of the "No"-vote were reported.

Greek citizens have queued at polling stations on Sunday to cast their ballots in a historic referendum to choose whether or not to accept a debt deal proposal tabled in late June by the country's lenders.
