BRUSSELS, July 17 The Greek bailout programme is
facing a small financing gap in late 2014, but it could be
filled with unused funds from the money Greece received for
recapitalising its banking sector, the European Commission said
Greece has already received almost all of the 50 billion
euros ($65.7 billion) earmarked in the bailout programme
specifically to recapitalise banks.
"After all the key operations have been successfully
concluded ... there is an unused buffer which could potentially
be used to reduce the overall financing gap," Commission
spokesman Simon O'Connor told a briefing.
There will 7 billion euros left over from the
recapitalisation, and O'Connor said the shorfall in Greece would
be around 4.6 billion euros.
