Merkel urges Rome to back eurozone - Solutions , such as in the case of Greece, can be found

Solutions , such as in the case of Greece, can be found
With voters in Italy now headed for the latest in a quick succession of national elections, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is urging whoever ends up running the country to continue to support the European Union's eurozone.

Reuters reported that the German leader is worried about the economic situation in Italy and the political volatility in the eurozone's most indebted country after Greece.

Merkel, arguably Europe's most powerful politician, said she will work with any Italian coalition government, as long as it stays within the rules of the eurozone.

"We should talk with every government but we have principles within the euro area and of course there will be difficult questions," Reuters cited her as saying.

Her comments followed Italy almost ending up with a radical, anti-establishment government.

The prospect of such a government forming eased at the weekend when several potential partners abandoned their efforts to form a government after a standoff with President Sergio Mattarella that saw him veto the group's choice of a euroskeptic for economy minister.

The deadlock means Italy will hold fresh elections while a former International Monetary Fund official will hold the reins temporarily as interim prime minister.

Merkel noted that solutions to economic crises, such as in the case of Greece, can be found.

"Look, when there were elections in Greece and Alexis Tsipras was made premier, there were many questions on the table," she told reporters in Berlin.

"We spoke with each other over many, many nights. Together, we achieved something. We have to do that task, since Italy is an important member of the EU."
