Greece to decide on new measures after EU visit - finmin
Greece will wait until the end of an ongoing visit by European Union inspectors before deciding if it will take extra fiscal measures to shore up its finances, the country's finance minister said on Tuesday.
"Any decision (on new measures) will be announced after talks with European Commission representatives are completed," Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou told reporters after a cabinet meeting.
"Greece will do whatever is needed to meet its targets under the Stability and Growth programme," Papaconstantinou added.
