Luxembourg’s Asselborn Warns Against Treaty Change, Welt Says

Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn warned the German government against pushing for a change to the European Union treaty, Die Welt reported, citing an interview.

The “vital and effective short-term objective” should be to stabilize the euro region, while large-scale amendments to the treaty would be cumbersome and difficult to implement and should be “secondary,” the newspaper cited Asselborn as saying in an e-mailed preview of an article to be published today.
