Merkel pledges to help State with reform
Irish Times

"German chancellor Angela Merkel has promised to assist Taoiseach Enda Kenny in maintaining the State’s “impressive” reform progress and ensuring Irish people’s sacrifice is recognised in the coming years."


"The German leader told Mr Kenny and a high-level Berlin audience yesterday afternoon that she was committed to helping Ireland boost job and income levels to pre-crisis levels. Though she declined to go into detail, Mr Kenny used a bilateral meeting to raise the State’s outstanding business of bank debt."

 

“If Ireland recovers as well as Enda Kenny says it will – and things have always happened as he said – then Germany will have to exert itself,” Angela Merkel told her Christian Democratic Union’s (CDU) Wirtschaftsrat or economic council.
