Solution for Greece`s Budget Deficit Is Found

Today European leaders came to the agreement aiming to help resolve the problem of 13% budget deficit in Greece.

According to this agreement, Greek government will receive lending facilities. Thus, the financial crisis in this country may be avoided. The EU leaders pledged to take “determined” action to struggle against the worst crisis in 11-year history of Euro. Greece's attempts to cope with its exploding debt has added to worries that the country might default. The EU President Herman Van Rompuy said: “We fully support the efforts of the Greek government and their commitment to do whatever is necessary including adopting additional measures.”

In order to safeguard financial stability in the region the EU leaders pledged to bail out Greek economy as here the problem of one euro-zone country becomes the problem of all. This step is considered historic in last ten years since the single currency was introduced. Euro zone leaders had hoped to keep Greece off the summit agenda. But they had to include it as worsening market conditions showed that Athens's problems could spill over to other EU countries.

Next week, the Ministers of finance of the EU countries will gather to discuss issues over Spain and Portugal also suffering from high budget deficit and increasing unemployment.
