Euro zone finance ministers are reportedly considering whether Slovenia may need outside aid to shore up its banking system... Slovenian Finance Minister Uros Cufer is expected to report to his euro-zone counterparts on the country's financial situation, which has been deteriorating over the past several months. The country is in recession, and is still struggling to bring its budget deficit in line with the EU-mandated maximum of 3 percent of gross domestic product.


The two [just bailed-out] financial institutions account for only 4.4 percent of the country's total bank assets. But observers believe the problem could be much more widespread, with bad loans in the entire Slovenian banking sector totaling more than €7 billion.
