Obama calls for decisive crisis action in Monti call

(ANSA) - New York, August 1 - United States President Barack Obama again called for the European Union to take "decisive action" to solve the eurozone crisis in a telephone conversation with Italian Premier Mario Monti late on Tuesday, the White House said. Monti travelled to Paris for talks with French President Francoise Hollande on Tuesday, kicking off a tour of meetings to discuss the crisis that will include encounters in Finland with Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen and in Madrid with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. Obama is worried that the knock-on effects of Europe's troubles could make the economic situation in the US even worse and affect his chances of winning re-election in November. The White House statement said the president regularly makes contact with European leaders to talk about the crisis.
