Greece's new Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis (right) greets the outgoing Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis at a hand-over ceremony in Athens on January 28, 2015Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has moved forward to Saturday a planned trip to Paris that launches the new anti-austerity government's search for EU allies, his office said. "The minister will travel to Paris on Saturday instead of Monday," a spokesman told AFP, adding that Varoufakis was expected to hold meetings on Sunday. Varoufakis, a maverick economist opposed to fiscal cuts, was originally due to meet with French counterpart Michel Sapin and Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron on Monday afternoon. The new government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was elected Sunday on a platform of renegotiating Greece's unpopular EU-IMF bailout and erasing half the country's debt.

The captain eventually resumed the controls, but a person familiar with the matter said he was not in a position to intervene immediately to recover the aircraft from its upset.
