Neighbours' debt crisis worries Finland

Country with AAA rating resents future possibility of bailing out embattled eurozone countries.

    Finland is the only AAA-rated European country with an economy that is on the rise.

    Growth is up by a third and exports are booming, while other European countries such as Greece and Spain are struggling to stay afloat.

    The nation fears the price of its success could mean funding bailouts for its eurozone neighbours.

    Finns resent having to take up this role, as Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports from Helsinki.
