Greek crisis: For Dominique Strauss-Kahn Southern Europe is vital for the North

In an open letter published in the liberal business daily Il Sole 24 Ore, former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn urges the Germans not to abandon Southern Europe: "It is to those that I now speak; to my German friends who believe in the Europe that together we once wanted; those who believe that a European culture exists. ... Forged in this peculiar alloy, a blend of individualism and egalitarian universalism. ... We are the custodians of that culture. ... Don't tell me you expect to save Europe simply by imposing rules of sound management. ... Falling back on the North will never suffice to save you. Like all Europeans, you need the whole of Europe to survive, divided we are too small. ... To survive among the giants, Europe will have to bring together all the territories contained between the ice caps of the North, the snows of the Urals and the sands of the South. ... Amidst all our internal conflicts, we are looking only to the North and we are forgetting the South. Yet it is the cradle of our culture. It's what will bring Old Europe new blood in the form of the young generations."
