European ministers Friday heaped pressure on Greece to speed up negotiations to unblock critically needed bailout funds, and avert a dangerous default and cash crunch as time for Athens runs out.The eurozone's 19 finance ministers meeting in Riga said a breakthrough toward unlocking 7.2 billion euros in bailout cash remained out of reach, as the threat of a messy exit by Greece from the eurozone sent the single currency lower against the dollar.For weeks, Greek officials and Athens' international creditors have been locked in technical discussions over the reforms Greece must adopt in exchange for the funds, with a deadline originally set for the end of the month.However, European officials are increasingly floating the end of June as the true deadline for Greece, when the current 240 billion euro ($260 billion) program expires.
