Volker Wieland warns against Italy as a risk factor ("Die Welt")

The formation of a government in Italy turns out to be complicated. In the opinion of Volker Wieland, the collision course is a danger for the euro. "Anyone who requests that the central bank should cancel debt in order to finance politics, such as the politicians who are entrusted with the formation of a government in Italy do, is basically questioning the euro and the monetary union," he said in an interview with "Welt am Sonntag"/"Die Welt".

All members have to support the system, he added.
