German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that the economic climate will still deteriorate, contradicting her finance minister, who last week claimed that the worst of the eurozone crisis was over.
In her new year TV address, Merkel called on Germans to be patient, despite the debt crisis now entering its fourth year.
"In fact, the economic situation next year will not be easier but more difficult. But this should not discourage us but instead be an incentive," said Merkel.
