May 22 (Bloomberg) -- European Union Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger warned the German government against “definitely” excluding euro bonds, Handelsblatt reported, citing an interview.

Euro bonds are “a matter of timing,” the German newspaper quoted Oettinger as saying. The EU Commissioner welcomed the European Parliament’s request for a euro debt amortization fund, Handelsblatt said. The fund should be financed with euro bonds, Handelsblatt cited Oettinger as saying.
