Concerning the inquiry into the responsibilities of the former managing of the fourth Spanish financial group, born from the fusion of seven banks, and after having spoken of Caixa Catalunya or Caja Castilla-La Mancha, Rajoy excluded the naming of an inquiry and reminded that the issue is being handled by the Congress' sub-committee for Economy, created during the past legislature. The PM pointed out that with the current risk differential of Spanish debt at 500 points "it is very difficult to finance oneself" and asked Europe to solve the problem concerning debt sustainability and dissipate every doubt surrounding the euro, "making it clear that it is an irreversible process". In this moment of "extremely difficult economic crisis", according to the PP leader it is "urgent and necessary" to make a "clear, precise and energetic choice capable of dissipating any doubts surrounding the euro". This is also the reason why he wished for greater fiscal integration, monetary and political, fundamental for the future of Spain.
"The problem is our monumental foreign debt and which has to be refinanced", he observed. If the spread is at 500 points "it is very difficult", he concluded. (ANSAmed).
