The proposal, drafted in June, remains a central plank of Finnish demands for collateral in return for providing more aid to Greece.
Senior euro zone officials held another conference call on Monday to try to resolve the collateral issue.
If Finland does not get its way, it may pull out of the Greek bailout, unleashing renewed trouble in financial markets.
