Debt crisis and IMF to dominate Obama, Merkel talks

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will air their differences over fiscal policy, the Eurozone crisis and the war in Libya on Tuesday in a meeting meant to illustrate a strong partnership. The two leaders will meet amid the pomp and circumstance of an official visit and a formal state dinner, but the shadow of global economic and security problems still looms. Obama and Merkel have not hidden their disagreements in the past. Obama favored more government stimulus spending during the global economic crisis while Merkel pressed for fiscal austerity. The United States endorsed military action in Libya; Germany confounded its NATO partners by refusing to take part.
