France says wants EU summit decisions implemented fast

PARIS, July 25 (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande wants euro zone crisis measures decided at an end-June EU summit to be implemented swiftly, government spokeswoman Najat Vallaud-Belkacem said on Wednesday as fears grow over Spain’s soaring borrowing costs.

“It’s absolutely necessary to implement decisions made at the June European Summit quickly and firmly,” Vallaud-Belkacem told a weekly briefing, asked what Hollande had told an earlier cabinet meeting about the risks of Spain needing a bailout.
