Merkel, Hollande to Meet over Greece

France likely wants Germany to pay


German and French leaders Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande are set to meet as they prepare to present a united front to Antonis Samaras, Greece's prime minister, about his country's bailout terms.

Merkel and Hollande are meeting to fine-tune their message to Samaras, who begins a charm offensive trip to Berlin and Paris on Friday in the hopes of persuading Europe's big powers that Greece deserves patience.
