France's Hollande to Meet ECB's Draghi Monday

By Nadya Masidlover

PARIS--French President Francois Hollande is set to meet European Central Bank President Mario Draghi Monday in Paris, days before the EU summit to be held on June 28 and 29, amidst the ongoing euro-zone crisis.

Earlier this week, Mr. Hollande said at a press conference in Los Cabos, Mexico, that talks would be held with the ECB, "in complete respect of its independence", and underlined that the ECB could continue to play a part in the resolution of the euro-zone crisis.

The meeting between the French head of state and the ECB president will intervene days after leaders of the euro zone's four biggest economies renewed calls for firmer political collaboration, as they met for a presummit meeting in Rome on Friday.
