It'll take European solidarity to achieve a sustainable recovery: German minister
“I can only recommend that we don’t delve into these ideological shadow debates where everyone advocates their favourite solution from five or 10 years ago”
Germany Economy Minister Peter Altmaier, asked about the possibility of using the European Stability Mechanism to support the coronavirus-stricken European economy, said that European solidarity was crucial to achieving economic recovery.
Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday, Altmaier said regarding the idea of euro bonds: "I can only recommend that we don't delve into these ideological shadow debates where everyone advocates their favourite solution from five or 10 years ago."
He added: "It is important to both talk and walk European solidarity, also because the European economies are very closely linked and a sustainable German recovery is only thinkable if the euro zone's economy also recovers."
