Germany has denied a report that French President Nicolas Sarkozy had threatened to pull his country out of the euro zone.

The report in Spain’s El Pais newspaper said Sarkozy made the threat at a meeting of European leaders in order to force Chancellor Angela Merkel to drop her long-standing opposition to an aid package for Greece.

But a German government spokeswoman said nothing of the kind ever happened.
