Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday urged an end to the "stereotypes" that have threatened to rip the eurozone apart.
Tspiras, making his first visit to the German capital since taking office in January, said "neither are the Greeks lazy louts nor are the Germans to blame for Greece's ills -- we have to work hard to overcome these stereotypes".
Merkel told the same joint news conference that she agreed that Europe must "surmount these types of stereotypes" about good and bad eurozone members to ensure the future of the currency union.
