The euro depreciated against its major counterparts in the European session on Wednesday, as Eurozone finance ministers failed to resolve impasse and agree on a package of measures to cushion the economic fallout from the coronavirus outbreak.

Ministers were deadlocked on the issue of coronabonds - jointly issued bonds as part of the crisis response.

While Italy, Spain, France and some other EU states favour common debt issuance, the Netherlands has rejected this idea.

The finance ministers will resume negotiations on Thursday.
