Foreign or sovereign?

It's the foreign debt (public and private) that's relevant for the CA imbalance, not the sovereign.

The Greek regulators should have. But they're probably not telling.

I would be very surprised if the average maturity was not substantially shorter on the total foreign debt than on the sovereign debt.
