[00:00.00]The heads of the International Monetary Fund

[00:03.06]and the European Central Bank were in Berlin Wednesday

[00:06.33]for talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel and other senior officials.

[00:10.30]The aim: to get agreement on a bailout package for Greece.

[00:14.28]Greece has been in negotiations

[00:16.24]with EU member countries and the IMF to secure a bailout

[00:20.31]- money that would allow it to pay debts coming due in time

[00:24.22]to avoid having to default.

[00:26.47]In return Greece is under pressure

[00:28.33]to restructure its economy and implement austerity measures.

[00:32.60]Disgruntled public-sector workers went on strike in Greece Wednesday

[00:36.57]to protest against the cutbacks.

[00:53.24]have sent jitters through world markets.

[00:55.75]And help is imperative because the Greek CRIsis could spread.

[01:04.93]but some European officials said Wednesday the full cost could be much higher,

[01:08.81]reaching about $160 billion over three years.
