ECB Says Italy Must Recover Alone, but Fate of Euro Zone in Balance (Reuters)

European Central Bank (ECB) policymaker Joerg Asmussen said Italy is too big to be rescued by external forces.

It will be decided in Rome, ” said Asmussen. However, he is optimistic regarding Italy‚Äôs future prospects.
