Berlin is prepared to accept France's Pierre Moscovici becoming EU economics commissioner so long as a budget hardliner, such as Finland's Jyrki Katainen, is appointed vice-president of the commission, reports Der Spiegel. Berlin had previously voiced opposition to Moscovici getting the post on grounds that France is breaching euro rules.
