French President François Hollande and Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti reaffirmed their commitment to the euro zone Tuesday, stressing a message they and other European officials have espoused in recent days as they seek to boost confidence in the 17-nation currency bloc.
“We repeated that we will do everything so…that the euro zone is defended, preserved and consolidated,” Mr. Hollande said after a meeting in Paris with Mr. Monti.
