Comments from an unnamed 'senior' German official cited by Reuters:

  • US monetary policy is a big challenge, expects to hear discussion at the upcoming IMF meeting on the timing of rate hikes
  • Also expects discussion on low Eurozone inflation but says it will be 'relaxed' discussion because falling prices are largely due to falling oil and raw materials

We don't know who the German official is, but from his hawkish comments on EU inflation, we can confirm he's indeed German.
