WASHINGTON (AP) - Financial leaders are pledging to address the risks posed to the global recovery from high government debt.

The IMF says it's strongly committed to addressing the risks posed by high government deficits. The debt crisis in Greece has dominated the IMF's meetings in Washington this weekend.
