Is the 'Euro crisis' closer to a resolution? Europe's leaders have promised to find by the end of this month a comprehensive package, not only to end this crisis, but also to preserve the stability of the euro for the future.

Chancellor Merkel likes to underline, rightly, that one should not speak of a 'Euro crisis', but of a 'Debt crisis.'
