. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was not in favour of creating a separate budget for the Eurozone, which now includes 19 countries, he stated, speaking in a keynote speech at the plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, which was broadcast by the services of EU.

«We do not need a separate budget for the Euro (zone – ed.), we need a strong Eurozone budget line within the existing budget of the EU,» he said.

Currently, there is a separate EU budget, which is still filled with contributions from all 28 member countries of the EU, not all of which are part of the Eurozone.

The European Parliament in February this year, adopted a resolution which proposed the creation of a Eurozone budget.
