PARIS, Aug 8 (Reuters) - The Group of Seven nations is
committed to taking coordinated action to ensure liquidity and
to support financial market functioning, financial stability and
economic growth, G7 finance ministers and central bank governors
said in a statement.
"These actions, together with continuing fiscal discipline
efforts will enable long-term fiscal sustainability," the
statement released early on Monday said.
"No change in fundamentals warrants the recent financial
tensions faced by Spain and Italy. We welcome the additional
policy measures announced by Italy and Spain to strengthen
fiscal discipline and underpin the recovery in economic activity
and job creation," it added.
