German Chancellor Angela Merkel drinks beer in a beer tent during a fair in Abensberg, southern Germany, Monday, Sept. 3, 2012. Merkel and her government have insisted that the key to resolving the eurozone’s debt crisis is for struggling countries to cut their budget deficits and pursue structural reforms such as liberalizing labor markets. Berlin says aid can only be granted under those conditions _ a point Merkel underlined in a speech Monday, Sept. 3, 2012 to supporters in the Bavarian beer tent, while also pleading for sympathy with countries that are undergoing painful changes.
