From Deutsche Welle:
Chancellor Angela Merkel has said it will take five years, or even longer, to overcome the eurozone debt crisis.In other words, don't get your hopes up.
The chancellor told members of her Christian Democrat (CDU) party in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania there were no rapid solutions to the eurozone crisis.
"We have to hold our breath for five years or more," Merkel warned delegates in the city of Sternberg. "Whoever thinks this can be fixed in one or two years is wrong."
