Tsipras vows to keep up pressure for German war payments

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras vowed Tuesday to do “whatever is necessary” — including taking legal action — to get Germany to pay damages for the wartime atrocities of Nazi troops. Berlin has said reparations to Greece were settled in 1960 as part of an agreement with several European governments. “(Greece) will do whatever is necessary, mainly at a diplomatic level, and if necessary, at a legal level,” Tsipras said during a visit to Kommeno, a village wiped out by Nazi soldiers in 1943.
