    EU Plans to help Greece

    Financial markets, however, anticipate European support to Greece leading to 4.96% gains in Athens Stock Market and drop in spreads on purchase of bonds.

    Reuters and "Financial Times" newspaper say that Europeans are preparing an aid plan to help Greece, not ruling out bilateral German aid.

    Today's issue of "The Financial Times" Deutschland, the German language version of the paper, reported on Wednesday that German Finance Ministry is preparing an aid plan to help Greece resolve its debt problems. Citing unnamed sources in the government, it said Berlin was looking at a European solution but measures by Germany alone were not excluded. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble is expected to give details on the plan. At the European Parliament on Tuesday, EU Monetary Affairs Commissioner, Joaquin Almunia stressed that Brussels must help Greece provided it honours its commitments.
