Reacting to the Greek claim, German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel said it was "dumb" to link Greece's bailout by the eurozone with the question of war reparations. "To be honest I think it's dumb. I think that it doesn't move us forward one millimetre on the question of stabilising Greece," he said. [BBC]
