China Supports Stable Euro, Strong EU Ties, Wen Says

China supports a stable euro and won’t reduce its holdings of European bonds, underlining its strengthening ties with the European Union, Premier Wen Jiabao told Greek lawmakers in Athens.

“From the outbreak of the sovereign debt crisis in certain European countries at the start of this year, I have repeatedly voiced China’s support of measures adopted by the European Union and International Monetary Fund,” said Wen, who began a tour of European capitals yesterday. “China supports a steady euro and it will not be reducing its European bond holdings.”
