Merkel defends eurozone bailout fund

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says the high court's decision to uphold the country's participation in eurozone bailout funds "absolutely confirms" her government's actions.
Merkel told parliament Wednesday after the decision that the euro meant more to Europe than just a common monetary zone, noting that no countries with a shared currency had ever gone to war with one another.
"The euro is the guarantor of a unified Europe," she told lawmakers. "If the euro collapses, Europe collapses."
She says the court's decision confirms her government's position that Germany needs to show solidarity with other European nations.
