European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde commented on the ongoing negotiations at the EU leaders summit
(latest is this, here: EU summit talks update - recovery fund talks dragging on, no agreement yet )
- "Ideally, the leaders' agreement should be ambitious in terms of size and composition of the package, broadly along the lines of what has been proposed by the Commission"
- "From my perspective, it's better to agree on an ambitious facility along these lines, even if it takes a bit more time. I would hope that the leaders agree on something that's ambitious rather than fast."
