ECB's Rehn calls for solidarity between European countries

HELSINKI, April 22 (Reuters) – European Central Bank policymaker Olli Rehn called on Wednesday for member states to enhance pan-European cooperation and for governments to take measures to support the economy amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“The difficulties caused by (the virus) are not due to any single country’s reckless management of finances. It is therefore necessary to support the most severely hit countries,” Rehn, who is Finland’s central bank chief, told a news conference.

Rehn said the ECB’s governing council would do everything necessary to ensure supportive financing conditions. (Reporting by Anne Kauranen; Editing by Toby Chopra)
