Strauss-Kahn: eurozone has just weeks to sort out problems

Text size Aa Aa

The former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has warned that the eurozone is a “raft that will sink” unless the region’s leaders come up with a solution “within weeks”.

He said one problem is the French and German leaders — Nicolas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel — do not understand each other.

The blunt and highly critical speech was made at a economic conference in Beijing. It was Strauss-Kahn’s first such appearance since an attempted rape charge against him was dropped.

Asked about that by reporters he said “No comment”.
