Euro Finance Chiefs Take Third Swing at Greek Aid

Officials must resolve a $13 bln funding gap.

Euro-area finance ministers try for the third time this month to clear an aid payment to Greece and forge a blueprint to keep the country a solvent member of the currency bloc.

Finance chiefs from the 17-member single currency return to Brussels today, less than a week after an all-night meeting failed to yield agreement and days after a European Union summit broke up without a proposed seven-year budget. At stake at the euro meeting is the continuation of a three-year mission to return Greece to financial health.

Another Meeting

Final approval may require a fourth gathering, pushing the decision to a previously scheduled meeting on Dec. 3, according to a statement today in Helsinki issued by Finland.
