Greek finance minister hints at third bailout

The finance minister says the country may need a third bailout but stresses that it would accept any new austerity measures.

Yannis Stournaras says Greece would need about €10 billion if the situation arises.

Already, Greece has received two bailouts totalling about €240 billion.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned about taking on more debt.

The German chancellor says this would be bad for the stability of the eurozone, which has seen a return in investor confidence after years of worrying about the future of the single currency following bailouts of several nations – most recently, Cyprus.
