Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Berlin on Oct. 9 to discuss the European debt crisis, said a person familiar with the plan who declined to be identified because the date hasn’t been formally announced.

Steffen Seibert, Merkel’s chief spokesman, declined to comment on the date of the meeting to Bloomberg News today, saying that the two leaders plan to meet before the next European Union Council summit in mid-October.
