Portugal Says Its Banks Have Little Exposure to Greek Debt

Portuguese banks have very small holdings of Greek government bonds, reducing the risk to them, Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho said.

“With the information that we have available today, there is very little exposure of Portuguese banks to Greek debt,” Passos Coelho told reporters after a European Union summit in Brussels today. “So surely that will not be a big problem in our financial system.”
