Leaders calling summit make or break for European Union
NBC News — The final preparations are being made for what leaders are calling a make or break summit on the fate of the European Union. Later this week leaders of the 27 EU countries will debate what to do to keep their common currency used by 300 million citizens afloat.
The fate of the euro is at the core of the continent's debt crisis. Greece's near bankruptcy rattled the currency and now a similar crisis in Italy has brought the euro to a breaking point analysts say.
