(ANSAmed) - BERLIN, NOVEMBER 12 - German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet with Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva and Premier Pedro Passos Coelho in Lisbon on Monday.

Unions and other activists organizing on Facebook announced they will take to the streets in protest against what they say is Berlin's hard line policy on the euro crisis. In a radio interview prior to her Lisbon mission, where she will also speak at a meeting of Portuguese and German entrepreneurs, the chancellor said that Portugal does not need more EU aid.

Merkel has a busy week ahead. In Berlin on Wednesday, she meets with Polish Premier Donald Tusk as part of German-Polish intergovernmental consultations; on Thursday November 15 she meets with French Premier Jean-Marc Ayrault, followed by a working dinner with Dutch Premier Mark Rutte ahead of the November 22-23 European summit; she flies to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Friday, for Russian-German intergovernmental consultations.(ANSAmed).
