Cannes, Nov 4 (IANS) French President Nicolas Sarkozy Thursday vowed to protect the euro currency as well as Europe, Xinhua reported.
Speaking during a press conference on the first day of the G20 summit held here in the French resort city of Cannes, Sarkozy said: “We cannot allow euro to break up. Breakup of the euro means the breakup of Europe.”
The French president said leaders from the world’s top economies focussed on the Greek debt crisis in their first day’s meeting in Cannes.
“We want Greece to stay in the eurozone,” Sarkozy said, adding that French and German message had helped with the Greek progress.
In the meantime, he warned that uncertainties still “surrounds the fate of the Greek government,” but said that “we will not meddle in the Greek politics.”
