The head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, has said he has no doubts about the ability of the euro to survive the current debt crisis.

Mr Draghi, who took over as head of the ECB in November, was being quizzed about an interview he had given to the Financial Times in its Monday edition in which his remarks were interpreted as a warning of a possible break-up of the single currency.

He dismissed such a reading as "morbid speculation."
