Merkel, Sarkozy Postpone Rome Talks Beyond Summit, Official Says

Don't Miss Out —

Jan. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The leaders of Italy, France and Germany will probably delay planned talks on the euro-area debt crisis until after the next European Union summit on Jan. 30, an Italian government official said.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy were due to meet in Rome on Jan. 20. The meeting was canceled at Sarkozy’s request because of a scheduling conflict, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the governments haven’t announced the change yet, said today.

A French government official said earlier today that the discussions may have to be rescheduled because of problems with the coordination of agendas.
