Merkel at EU Summit

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is giving a news conference after a meeting of EU leaders on the Eurozone debt crisis.

Twenty-five of the EU's 27 member states have agreed to join a fiscal treaty to enforce budget discipline.

The Czech Republic and the UK refused to sign up. The UK's position was already well known, while the Czechs cited "ratification reasons".
