Liechtenstein PM optimistic about concluding tax deal with EU

Liechtenstein's prime minister says he is optimistic about reaching a deal with the European Union over legal assistance in tax evasion cases.
Otmar Hasler says the tiny Alpine principality has made significant progress in its negotiations with the EU and he believes the talks will reach a successful conclusion soon.
Hasler's comments were distributed in a statement Friday after a meeting with EU officials in Liechtenstein's capital Vaduz.
The EU wants legal assistance in tracking down its citizens suspected of evading taxes by funnelling money through bank accounts in Liechtenstein. The country recently hit the headlines after German authorities obtained information that led to tax evasion investigations around the world.
