'Debt talks are stalled'

FRENCH President Nicolas Sarkozy (right) is reported to have told a meeting of French politicians that talks on the EU debt crisis are stalled.

The sticking point is over whether the European Central Bank should support the zone's bailout rescue fund, he reportedly said.

Mr Sarkozy was heading to Frankfurt for talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and senior officials on the eurozone debt crisis.
