Euro meltdown: Nicolas Sarkozy flies into Berlin for crisis talks with Angela Merkel
By ALLAN HALL
French President Nicolas Sarkozy today flew to Berlin for a summit with Angela Merkel aimed at forging a common stance on the Greek rescue package as the eurozone lurches closer to collapse.
Chancellor Merkel telephoned the French president on Tuesday night after she said that Thursday's summit was unlikely to deliver the 'silver bullet' necessary to fix the debt engulfing weak countries that use the euro
Mrs Merkel, who is increasingly agitated at Germany being called upon to be the main bailout partner for countries like Greece, Ireland and Portugal, is seen by her countrymen as increasingly weak and without direction.
