Reading Time: 1 minute

But four eurozone diplomats directly involved in the negotiations told POLITICO that at their meeting on December 3, Eurogroup finance ministers are likely to decide to postpone most reforms.

However POLITICO reports that Italy’s challenge to the EU’s fiscal rules is set to derail the eurozone’s efforts to introduce widespread economic safeguards for the single currency bloc next month.
