Europe: Portugal, Finland Threaten Summit | Finland | Scoop.it
Portugal's government is in danger of collapse as the country's opposition parties oppose another austerity package, a move that could force the country to seek a bailout from the rest of Europe and the International Monetary Fund.
Finnish support is needed because its strong credit rating (it is one of only six AAA rated countries in the eurozone) will help the bailout and financing mechanism to work.
