Van Rompuy statement on issue of Eurozone guarantees

European Council President Herman Van Rompuy Monday reaffirmed the Euro area's volition to resolving a dispute over guarantees, first requested by Finland, in order to finalise a second support mechanism for Greece, worth 109 billion euros.  
Speaking after a meeting Finnish Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen, Van Rompuy said that "we're committed to finding a solution to this matter ...a solution that addresses Finland's concern and that does not undermine the wider purpose of reinforcing confidence and financial stability.
"... I'm confident we will find an agreement soon. Of course, we expect Greece also to deliver on all its commitments as to the strict implementation of the reforms agreed with the EU," he added.
