Katainen Says He’s ‘Confident’ Eurozone Will Agree on Collateral

September 28, 2011

Talks in Brussels “have gone well” and a solution to Finland’s demand should be found within “days or weeks,” Katainen said in an interview in parliament in Helsinki. Finland’s approval of the European Financial Stability Facility that is needed to pay out the Greek loans improves confidence on the markets, he said.
