BERLIN (Reuters) - Only the bloc's biggest banks should come under European supervision, a senior German official said on Monday, days before finance ministers meet to try to resolve a deep divide over the scope of a new oversight body.
Steffen Kampeter, deputy finance minister, told reporters in Berlin that banks that did not present a systemic risk should remain under the oversight of national authorities.
"We don't want all the banks lumped together," he said.
