Bank of Slovenia owns 200 million euros ($264 million) of Greek bonds, daily Finance reported on Monday, citing unofficial sources.

It also said Slovenian banks had 8 million euros of Greek bonds at the end of January according to their market value at the time, while Slovenian insurers had 15.7 million euros of such bonds.
