Despite approving a four-month extension to Greece's bailout on Friday, Germany's frustration with Athens' financial demands is palpable.
The German public is angry about Greece's latest bailout demands because the country's government has been "insulting" during negotiations, Michael Fuchs, the deputy chairman of Germany's ruling coalition CDU/CSU parliamentary group, told CNBC.
"It's a bit (to blame) on the Greek government and particularly (Finance Minister Yanis) Varoufakis, who came up with some wordings which were not (appropriate) for someone who is demanding… money," Fuchs told CNBC in Berlin Thursday.
Fuchs but said public opinion did not appear to be behind the extensions to Greece's bailout. On Thursday, the widely-read German newspaper Bild Zeitung launched a campaign against the bailout deal with the headline "Nein," and encouraging its 2.5 million readers to protest the extension.
