Merkel heads to Brussels for crucial euro summit

Help

European Union leaders are preparing to meet for a closely-watched Brussels summit on the fate of the euro.

On the summit's eve, German Chancellor Angela Merkel held two hours of talks with the French President Francois Hollande in Paris.

The two remain at odds on how to move forward, with Germany opposed to pooling debt while France insists the eurozone needs further integration.
