Greek Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou, left, and Labor Minister Andreas Loverdos talk to reporters as they leave the prime minister's office in Athens after talks on draft reforms to the country's pension system, on Tuesday, June 1, 2010. On Monday, JUne 14, 2010, Moody's Investors Service slashed Greece's credit rating to junk status, the latest blow to the debt-ridden nation. This led to fears Greece and other European governments could default on their debts and drove up gains in U.S. Treasury securities holding by China and other governments.
