Euro-Region Ministers From Six AAA Nations Said to Meet on EFSF

Finance ministers of Germany, France, the Netherlands and three other euro-area nations with AAA credit ratings will meet today to discuss ways to make better use of the European Union’s rescue fund.

The talks will happen before the region’s finance ministers gather for a monthly meeting in Brussels. The group will discuss how nations can tap more aid from the 440 billion-euro ($586 billion) European Financial Stability Facility, which in November provided assistance to Ireland, said an EU diplomat, who declined to be identified because the meeting is private.
