Nicolas Sarkozy is to travel to Italy with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on January 20, the French president said Friday after talks with Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti in Paris.

Speaking to journalists alongside Monti, Sarkozy said Paris and Rome "have exactly the same view on Europe's future and on how to resolve the confidence crisis at the heart of the eurozone."

A meeting between the leaders of the three countries would bring together the crisis-hit eurozone's three largest economies as Italy and France fight to head off new doubts about their deficit reduction plans.
