Europe's recovery from a deep recession is incomplete and uneven so there is no room for complacency by governments or the European Central Bank, ECB President Christine Lagarde said on Friday.

"This current moment is coined by this uneven, incomplete and asymmetric recovery that we have observed in the third quarter after a very catastrophic second quarter," Lagarde told a press conference after meeting European Union finance officials.

"No complacency! Our accommodative monetary policy needs the support of fiscal policy, and none of us can afford complacency in the present time," she added. (Reuters)
