28th November 2010, Comments 0 comments

The countries in the euro area must take action to defend their currency, Belgian Finance Minister Didier Reynders told Sunday's emergency meeting of EU finance ministers to discuss the bailout for Ireland.

"The eurozone must react and defend its currency," Reynders, whose country currently holds the rotating EU presidency, said on arriving for the meeting.

"We must take every possible measure, which in the future will enable us to stand firm when there is turbulence," he added.
