  U.S. Treasury welcomes eurozone firewall deal  

  

 

U.S. Treasury Department said on Friday that it welcomed the latest eurozone efforts to bolster its firewall to contain the region's debt crisis.

  WASHINGTON, March 30 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Treasury Department said on Friday that it welcomed the latest eurozone efforts to bolster its firewall to contain the region's debt crisis.

  "Today's announcement by the Eurogroup reinforces a trajectory of positive efforts to strengthen confidence in the euro area," U. S. Treasury spokeswoman Natalie Wyeth said in a statement.

  "Over the last several months, European leaders have made significant progress in addressing the crisis, and we welcome their unequivocal commitment to reinforcing their currency union. We also look forward to continuing discussions in the G20 about how best to restore the global economy to strong, sustainable and balanced growth," Wyeth added.

  Eurozone finance minister announced Friday the 17 eurozone member countries had agreed to build an 800 billion euro (about 1. 1 trillion U.S. dollars) financial firewall against the current debt crisis.

  The bailout funds primarily comprise the temporary EFSF and the 500 billion euros permanent ESM. The ministers said eurozone countries had committed to providing 150 billion euros in additional bilateral contributions to the Washington-based IMF to step up its lending capacity.
