I agree, Athens is blackmailing the EU to get more money.

Although China was in the past ready to hand out credits in exchange for long term strategic positions. For example in the case of Ecuador they gave large credits in exchange for the right to sell most of the countries crude oil. They buy and sell it at world market prices, do not make much profit, but have control over who gets it. In the case of Greece they could get ports inside the EU, not very likely, but there is something the Chinese might get interested.
