Italian leader blasts bailout-critical countries

AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France | Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti on Sunday slammed unnamed European Union states for undermining the “credibility” of the eurozone and urged rapid action on an agreed strategy for resolving the debt crisis.

The Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers will meet in Brussels on Monday and again on July 20, following the watershed EU summit that promised fresh capital for Spain’s struggling banks, a European bank union to keep lenders in line and making it easier for the bloc’s new bailout fund to help states in trouble.
