Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that a European Union summit achieved a “breakthrough” to a “lastingly stable euro.”
With new deficit rules tougher than the old Growth and Stability pact as part of a fiscal union to develop over the next few years, the EU is creating a “new basis of confidence” for the euro, Merkel told reporters in Brussels today after an EU summit.
“The breakthrough to a stability union has been achieved,’’ Merkel said.
