223-G20 finance ministers in day two of eurozone talks

Finance ministers of the G20 group of nations are meeting in Paris to continue talks on solving the eurozone debt crisis.

One question is whether the International Monetary Fund should increase in size as part of a broader global response to the situation.

However the idea has been met with some resistance by the US, reports say.

On Friday, US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke by phone to discuss the crisis.

US officials said Mr Obama had warned of the risks posed to the US economy, and also discussed preparations for a G20 summit in Cannes scheduled for early next month.
