Euro zone finmins in conf call on Ireland at 1700 GMT

(Corrects spelling of “application” in first paragraph)

BRUSSELS, Nov 21 (BestGrowthStock) – Euro zone finance ministers
will discuss Ireland’s application for European Union financial
help at a conference call on Sunday at 1700 GMT, but no concrete
amounts will be discussed yet, a euro zone source said.

Ireland’s finance minister Brian Lenihan said earlier on
Sunday he would recommend to the government at a cabinet meeting
this afternoon to formally apply for support from the EU.

The euro zone source said an Irish application “was on its
way” and it would be discussed first by euro zone finance
ministers in a conference call and then by all EU finance
ministers at another call at 1800 GMT.

“No amounts will be discussed today. The ministers will
issue a statement tonight,” the source said.
