ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece still seeks reparations for its victims of World War Two and repayment for a loan it was forced to make to its Nazi occupiers, President Prokopis Pavlopoulos told his visiting German counterpart on Thursday.

Pavlopoulos, who met Frank-Walter Steinmeier in Athens, said that such demands fell under the framework of "resistance against those who want to return to a nightmarish past", hinting at the rise of the far-right in Europe ahead of EU elections.
