BRUSSELS, March 27 (Reuters) - Euro zone finance ministers will find a compromise on the size of the bloc’s bailout fund for indebted countries at a meeting later this week, the EU’s top economic official said on Tuesday, although he declined to be drawn on details.
“We have already taken significant decisive steps towards a stronger and permanent firewall to contain contagion and calm down market instability if it arises,” EU Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn told a news conference.
“Further reinforcement will be decided on Friday, which will help us remove any remaining doubts. I am confident we can reach a confidence-building compromise,” Rehn said.
Finance ministers meet on Friday in Copenhagen where they are expected to agree on the design and the combined size of the bloc’s rescue funds.
