BRUSSELSâGreek Prime Minister George Papandreou on Thursday requested that European Union leaders at their summit next week agree to a package of standby loans to restore confidence in the country's debt. He also confirmed that Greece is keeping its aid options open, but would prefer help from the European Union to a bailout by the International Monetary Fund. The prime minister has spoken with the IMF and said that the tough fiscal austerity measures Greece has put in place already conform with IMF requirements. "They would ask nothing more," he said. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100...9022672073334.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_LEFTTopStories Germany : No. France : yes.
