CANBERRA - The failure so far of US lawmakers to reach an agreement on raising the country's debt ceiling is adding to global economic uncertainty, Australian Treasurer Wayne Swan said on Monday.

"With the global recovery and confidence still fragile, it's in everyone's interests that US policymakers work towards a speedy resolution of these issues. Protracted debate is adding to uncertainty in the global economy," Swan said in an email to Reuters.
