Finance officials see rising risks to economic recovery

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Global finance officials see a number of growing threats on the horizon to the economy's post-recession recovery.

Atop the list is the looming threat of a possible Greek debt default.

Financial officials are wrapping up three days of talks in Washington. And they're pledging renewed efforts to achieve what they call "more robust, balanced and job-rich global economy."

But a statement from the International Monetary Fund's policy-setting committee also cites increasing risks to achieving those goals.

The head of the European Central Bank, says there's an urgent need to resolve the Greek debt crisis.

Mario Draghi (DRAHG'-ee) says a Greek default would put the world in "uncharted waters."
