Merkel says convinced Europe will find solutions to crisis
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday she was convinced that Europe would find the right solutions to its crippling debt crisis at a summit due to start shortly in Brussels.
"We will find good solutions. I'm convinced that we will find a solution to all these questions," Merkel told a meeting of right-wing European parties in Marseille, admitting that talks would be "difficult" at the EU summit.
"I ask for understanding from those who do not have the euro. We must send a strong signal to the outside. Words alone are not enough, we need more ties, we need treaty changes," she said.
