Lisbon Treaty

EU rescue fund pleases Reinfeldt

Swedish Prime Minister Frederik Reinfeldt spoke positively of the European Union's decision, made late Thursday night, to go along with a controversial Franco-German proposal for an amendment to the EU's Lisbon treaty.

After seven hours of talks, EU leaders agreed to institute a permanent rescue fund for countries that find themselves in deep economic trouble. The details of the fund won't be presented until December, with limited changes to the treaty expected to come into force in mid-2013, reports Agence France-Press.

Reinfeldt is in Brussels for a two-day summit aimed at creating new sanctions on debt and deficit offenders to prevent new economic crises. Of the rescue fund, he told Swedish television, "I think it's important to get this in place. We have had a deep financial crisis, and in Europe, we have a lot of countries facing deep problems with public finances. When a country isn't doing enough, the effects spill over into other countries."
