Euro Crisis

E.U. Will Reach Deal on Greek Aid Next Week

Says Italian Finance Minister Vittorio Grilli


Italian Finance Minister Vittorio Grilli is confident that euro-region finance chiefs will reach an agreement on aiding Greece when they meet next week.

Greece was granted an additional two years to reach budget- deficit goals in its bailout program. European finance ministers will be discussing ways of plugging the funding gap resulting from that extension at a Nov. 20 meeting in Brussels.
