Germany’s Roesler Says ECB’s Task Is Not to Buy Sovereign Debt
German Economy Minister Philipp Roesler said the European Central Bank isn’t responsible for buying the region’s debt because the European Financial Stability Facility was put in place to help countries reduce interest rates on their debt.
Roesler made the comments in an interview with German newspaper Schleswig-Holstein am Sonntag, according to an e- mailed statement from his Free Democratic Party.
