Germany wants new Greek rulers to ditch promises-document (Updated)

Germany wants Greece’s new left-wing government to go back on anti-austerity promises made in its first days in office and revert to economic policies its predecessors’ agreed with international lenders, a document showed on Wednesday.

Greece promptly rejected such calls.

The document, seen by Reuters, was prepared by Berlin for a meeting of senior euro zone finance officials on Thursday. The officials are to discuss the currency bloc’s response to Greek demands for an official debt write-off or restructuring, an end to budget cuts and a reversal of some recent unpopular measures.
