(Reuters) – Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti believes eurobonds will become a reality in the 17-nation euro zone and that Greece will remain in the single currency, he told a Greek newspaper on Saturday.
Monti, a respected former European commissioner who became Italy’s prime minister in November, was known to be a supporter of eurobonds – unlike politicians in European Union paymaster Germany - but his comments were some of his strongest on the subject yet and looked like an attempt to sway Berlin.
“I believe we will have eurobonds in one form or another because our union is becoming all the more integrated,” Monti told the Sunday edition of the To Vima newspaper in an interview made available on Saturday.
