NOT WALKING YET: The chairman of a meeting of eurozone finance ministers said that Greece will "very likely" need more financial aid beyond its current rescue loan programs, which end next year.

LIFE SUPPORT: Greece has been kept out of bankruptcy since 2010 with rescue loans worth 240 billion euros ($316 billion), given by its eurozone partners and the International Monetary Fund. The need for further aid doesn't sit well with creditor countries like Germany.

REALITY BITE: Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Dutch Finance Minister serving as the meeting's chairman, says a decision won't be made before April of next year.
