Greek debt crisis: Lucas Papademos on 'Herculean' task

Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos has said tackling his nation's debt will be a "Herculean" task, but it is possible with the support of the Greek people.

He was speaking after talks with European Commissioner Jose Manuel Barroso about Greece's debt crisis.

Mr Papademos said the new coalition government hoped to make the Greek economy more competitive and "address increasing unemployment".
