Merkel asks Greece for details of planned economic reforms

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called on Greece to specify the economic reforms it intends to carry out after gaining a four-month extension for its bailout program.

Ms. Merkel said Friday’s approval of the extension by the German lower house, the Bundestag, offers Greece an opportunity to successfully complete its program.

“On this basis I wish Greece a good future as a member of the eurozone,” Ms. Merkel said in a speech Monday.
