    Portugal has been promised continued bailout support by the head of the eurozone finance ministers.

    Speaking after meeting Portuguese political leaders in Lisbon, Jeroen Dijsselbloem said that could include being allowed more time to hit budget deficit targets.

    For its part, Portugal has to stick to those recently recently-revised targets and carry out structural reforms.
