"Berlin's opposition to pooling eurozone debt by issuing eurobonds has been underscored by a quote attributed to Chancellor Angela Merkel. Germany will not share the liabilities "as long as I live," she apparently said.
Her reported reaction precedes Thursday's EU summit on the eurozone crisis which will consider a call led by EU President Herman Van Rompuy for closer fiscal and banking union and common debt bonds. Merkel apparently made the remark on Tuesday while visiting parliamentarians from her junior coalition partner, the pro-business liberal Free Democrats (FDP).Several FDP parliamentarians are reported to have then called out that they "wished her a long life."
