The Finance Minister Mr. Yannis Stournaras said that Greece would need an additional €13-15bn to finance a two-year extension to meet its budget targets but is confident of bridging that gap without burdening European taxpayers.

The deputy finance minister Mr. Christos Staikouras said that Greece may seek a rollover of its ECB-held bonds or try to raise additional short-term debt to plug a possible financing gap in the coming years. He also said that Greece might have to raise more money from debt markets in 2015 and 2016 that the €10.6bn foreseen in its bailout agreement earlier in this year.
