Sweden open to EU rescue fund

Published torsdag 28 oktober 2010 kl 16.48
Fredrik Reinfeldt speaking to reporters in Brussels

Swedish Prime Minister Frederik Reinfeldt says his government is willing to listen to a controversial Franco-German proposal for an EU treaty change, if it doesn't cause problems.

Arriving in Brussels Thursday for a two-day summit aimed at creating new sanctions on debt and deficit offenders to prevent new economic crises, Reinfeldt said he would not oppose the plan to set up a permanent rescue fund. The change would require an amendment of the Lisbon Treaty, as Germany says this would be a legal prerequisite for its contribution.

But Reinfeldt says he opposes Germany's call for debt and deficit offenders to be stripped of their EU voting rights.
