German warned on oppossing 3rd bailout for Greece
German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has warned his country’s MPs that it would be “irresponsible” to oppose a third bailout deal for Greece.
He told a debate in parliament they should “seize the chance” for a new beginning for Greece.
MPs are to vote on the deal later. Chancellor Angela Merkel is expected to win approval but is bracing for a rebellion in her centre-right alliance.
The coalition is divided over the €86bn ($95bn; £61bn) package.
Between 60 and 100 coalition MPs could oppose the vote, commentators say.
