Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said the U.S. has a “huge interest” in Europe solving its sovereign-debt crisis.

“If Europe has a comprehensive strategy in place that looks like it makes sense, and is using the very ample financial resources of Europe, then we’re happy to see the IMF play a continuing role,” he said in a CNBC interview in Paris today. “We have a huge interest in Europe getting ahead of this and fixing it.”

He also said that any U.S. assistance for Europe will come through the IMF, CNBC reported.
