  • *ECB'S NOWOTNY SAYS DON'T EXPECT TOO MUCH FROM EU SUMMIT
  • *NOWOTNY SAYS ECB DOESN'T WANT TO CONTINUE BUYING BONDS
  • *NOWOTNY SAYS ECB FAVORS EFSF BOND PURCHASES OVER BUYING ITSELF
  • *NOWOTNY SAYS GREEK TALKS CAN'T START WITH WISH FOR MORE TIME

  • *SEIBERT SAYS MERKEL CONCERNED EU SEEKING 'EASY WAYS' ON CRISIS
  • *MERKEL SAYS ECONOMIC GROWTH MUST BE SUSTAINABLE
  • *MERKEL SAYS LIVING BEYOND MEANS LED TO EURO DEBT CRISIS
  • *MERKEL SAYS SHARED EURO-AREA DEBT 'COUNTERPRODUCTIVE' NOW
  • *MERKEL REJECTS JOINT EURO BONDS, JOINT EURO BILLS
  • *MERKEL REJECTS JOINT DEPOSIT INSURANCE IF MEANS JOINT LIABILITY
