BERLIN, Sept 5 Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel
said on Monday that she did not think any country would be
leaving the euro zone and any such move could cause a dangerous
"From a technical and legal point of view there is no
possibility at all. But I'm also not thinking about that
possibility because we could trigger a domino effect that would
be extraordinarily dangerous to our currency system," she told a
news conference, adding that it was important for Greece to
stick to its promised economic reforms.
Merkel said she was confident her centre-right government
would manage its own majority in a vote on the euro zone bailout
fund on Sept. 29, and denied that campaigning on her record in
the euro crisis in Sunday's state election in
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern had contributed to a setback there for
her Christian Democrats (CDU).
