OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada is very concerned about the European debt crisis, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday in the latest comment by a senior Canadian government official about the problems in Europe.

Harper and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty have repeatedly urged European officials to deal quickly with the crisis.

"We're obviously very concerned about the situation in Europe," Harper told the House of Commons.
