Grilli Says Europe’s Bailout Power Adequate Even With ESM Delay

July 18 (Bloomberg) -- Italian Finance Minister Vittorio Grilli said Europe has sufficient resources to rescue troubled nations amid delays to the activation of the area’s new bailout fund.

In the meantime, the European Financial Stability Facility, the area’s existing bailout program, is available, Grilli said.
