Euro Finance Chiefs Have Good Prospects for Deal on Greek Aid

February 20, 2012

Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Euro-area finance ministers meeting in Brussels have good prospects for reaching a deal on a second Greek rescue package, though more talks are necessary, a European diplomat said today.

Several rounds of talks have taken place between Greece and the Institute of International Finance, which is leading the debt talks on behalf of private creditors, as a majority of euro states were pushing for bondholders to accept greater losses, the diplomat said on condition of anonymity because the talks are ongoing.

All 17 delegations at the talks are committed to reaching an agreement at the meeting, which began at 3:30 p.m. yesterday, the diplomat said.
