More states could join the euro

■ Deepening problems in the Eurozone may not deter other European states from joining the single currency bloc, the Prime Ministers of Croatia and Latvia revealed yesterday. Croatian PM Zoran Milanovic said that interest in signing up to the euro – which is currently the official currency of 17 European countries – remains strong in the Balkan state. Most Croats would still say “yes” to adopting the euro, Milanovic said after a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Croatia is scheduled to join the Eurozone next summer. Meanwhile the Baltic state of Latvia could become the 19th member of the single currency. Its PM Valdis Dombrovskis told The Guardian that the positives still outweight the negatives.
