LONDON (MarketWatch) -- European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said Sunday he is confident that European leaders will reach agreement on Wednesday on a comprehensive package of measures to tackle the euro-zone debt crisis. Speaking at a press conference in Brussels after a summit of the 27 European Union leaders, Van Rompuy said that "good progress" was made over the weekend on a plan to recapitalize European banks. "The recapitalization of the banks, giving a lasting solution to Greek debt and leveraging the European Financial Stability Facility are three main parts of this package," he said. "We are confident that we will get an agreement on Wednesday." Van Rompuy also played down differences between France and Germany, saying that "we are working in a spirit of compromise." "I saw a French president and a German chancellor determined to work together with the other members of the euro zone," he added. A summit of the 17 euro-zone leaders is scheduled for later on Sunday.
