Noonan Says Euro Finance Chiefs Hope to Prepare Summit Agenda

October 21, 2011

Oct. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Irish Finance Minister Michael Noonan said euro area finance chiefs seek a “comprehensive solution” to the debt crisis and to “make decisions about Greece.”

Asked whether it was worrying that a second summit is needed to get a deal, the minister referred to the German supreme court judgement on the need for Germany’s parliament to be consulted.

“I’m not too surprised at that,” he said of the decision to hold an Oct. 26 summit.
