how the country can bring its debts to a sustainable level.
In New York, shares of National Bank of Greece
tumbled 4.9 percent to $1.95.
Euro zone finance ministers suggested Greece should be given
until 2022 to lower its debt-to-GDP ratio to 120 percent, but

In other moves, Vodafone fell after the British
mobile operator wrote down the value of its businesses in Spain
