Merkel Tells Voters Germany Will Emerge Stronger From Crisis

Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany will emerge stronger from the sovereign debt turmoil, as she sought to rally support for her crisis-fighting strategy ahead of elections in her home state in five days.

Merkel, in the first of five campaign appearances this week in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania before a regional vote on Sept. 4, acknowledged voter concern about the impact of the crisis on the euro, while saying that such fears are misplaced.
