Greek finance minister Evangelos Venizelos listens to a question from the media during a press conference on the state of the Greek economy in Athens on Friday, Sept. 2, 2011. Venizelos rejected reports that the country's international debt review has been suspended due to a break-down in talks, saying the pause was scheduled and insisted the government would not impose any additional revenue-generating measures beyond what had already been agreed and voted on in Parliament as part of conditions for Greece's bailout. The finance minister said the country is in a deeper recession than originally forecast _ he estimated the economic contraction will be "very close" to 5 percent this year.(AP Photo/Kostas Tsironis) less
