Asian Shares Shrug Off Greece Fears

Shares in Asia opened flat or higher early on Tuesday, beginning to recover some of Monday's losses despite fears of a Greek debt default.
In Japan, the Nikkei 225 share index was up 0.32% at 20,183.85points.
Talks between Greece and its creditors broke down last week, leading to Greek banks having to shut this week.
Earlier, Standard & Poor's ratings agency downgraded Greece's credit rating one notch further into junk territory.
The agency also said there was a 50% chance Greece would exit the eurozone.
