BERLIN, March 22 Financial markets' muted
reaction to the Cyprus bailout crisis so far shows the euro zone
is well placed to deal with turbulence, German Finance Minister
Wolfgang Schaeuble was quoted on Friday as saying.
"The crisis over Cyprus has so far had no measurable impact
on the interest rates of, for example, Spain or Portugal,"
Schaeuble told the Bild daily, according to excerpts of an
article to be published in Saturday's edition.
"The financial markets clearly recognise that the euro zone
is essentially better prepared for possible turbulence."
