Eastern European nations do not want a special rescue programme for their region, top European Union officials said at the end of emergency economic summit talks tonight. EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said the ten eastern states of the bloc 'do not want a programme just for them' because different nations had different problems. Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek said the European Union will not leave any nation 'in the lurch'. Topolanek chaired today's crisis talks on Europe's troubled economies. EU nations agreed that governments should make sure that bail-outs for banks or car makers should not be protectionist or hurt the economies of other members in the 27-nation bloc.
