Euro-Zone Governments Agree to Provide Extra $195 Billion for IMF Lending
Euro-area governments met a target for boosting their anti-crisis warchest with a pledge to provide 150 billion euros ($195 billion) to the International Monetary Fund.

Britain will “define its contribution” in early 2012, the statement said.
