Cameron Says ‘We Have to Put the Fire Out’ in Euro Region

October 04, 2011

Oct. 4 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron said the debt crisis in the euro region needed to resolved without delay after Foreign Secretary William Hague described the single currency as “a burning building with no exits.”

“We’ve got to put the fire out,” Cameron told BBC Radio 4 today from Manchester, northwest England, where his Conservative Party is holding its annual conference. He said the crisis was holding back world growth and urged euro-area leaders to resolve the Greek crisis, strengthen banks and “scale up” the region’s rescue fund.
