BERLIN Oct 15 German Chancellor Angela Merkel
said on Monday she agreed with her finance minister, Wolfgang
Schaeuble, that there would not be any "uncontrollable
developments" in the euro zone, like a Greek default or exit
from the single currency bloc.
"I have heard such concerns in Asia, in China, that there
could be some sort of uncontrollable process in the euro zone,
but I agree totally with the finance minister that there will
not be any such uncontrollable developments," she said.
She told a news conference that she had assured Greek Prime
Minister Antonis Samaras in Athens last week that she wanted his
country to remain in the euro zone, "but our work is not yet
over, there is much to do in coming days and weeks".
