BERLIN (AP) - Germany's chancellor said any new Greek government must continue to implement the mix of austerity measures and structural reforms that the country has agreed to in exchange for its international bailouts.
Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday said Greece itself must see what coalition government might be feasible following Sunday's parliamentary elections.
Germany says it will work with any democratically elected Greek government. But Merkel cautions that "of course, the most important thing is that the programs we agreed with Greece will be continued."
Greece - which is deeply mired in recession - has agreed to harsh austerity measures and reforms in return for two massive bailouts from European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
