Alexis Tsipras met with Angela Merkel in Berlin for his first state visit to Germany. They've been at loggerheads over a multi-billion euro bailout deal for months. CCTV's Guy Henderson filed this report from Berlin.

Highlights:

  • When Mr. Tsipras’ finance minister came to Berlin in February, Yanis Varoufakis couldn’t even agree to disagree with his German counterpart.
