ATHENS, Feb 3 (Reuters) - The euro zone could need a more symmetrical definition of price stability, the European Central Bank’s vice-president Luis de Guindos said on Monday, referring to the bloc’s inflation target.

The ECB currently targets inflation at below but close to 2%, a target that is currently under review as part of a one-year deep dive into the bank’s strategy. (Reporting by Lefteris Papadimas)
