“The presence of His Holiness the Pope affords an opportunity to pray for divine intervention to save the euro.Oddly enough, the press release is not on the European Council's website!
This is now seen as the most credible strategy.”
Here is the text of the press release:
THE EUROPEAN UNION
Brussels, 29 March 2012
Eurozone summit next weekend
It has been confirmed that a Eurozone summit will be held on April 1.
Due to inadvertant wording of the Treaty on Stability, Coordination & Governance, which refers to countries "whose currency is the euro", it has been confirmed that this summit will also include the heads of state or government of Montenegro, Kosovo, San Marino, Monaco, Andorra and the Vatican City, all of which use the euro.
The presence of His Holiness the Pope affords an opportunity to pray for divine intervention to save the euro. This is now seen as the most credible strategy.
11.00 meeting with the President of the European Parliament
12.00 family photo
