Trichet Says Euro Governments Must Act to Meet Budget Targets

Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet said the euro area’s 16-member governments must take all steps necessary to make their deficit reduction plans credible.

Trichet also said that the European Union has the “instruments” necessary to deal with threats to the euro and that the ECB’s current interest rates are “appropriate.”
