FRANKFURT (Reuters) - The euro zone will have to live with low interest rates for now but European Central Bank policy must be normalized as soon as inflation is on track to hit its target, Bundesbank board member Andreas Dombret said on Wednesday.

"Given the current inflation data, we will probably have to live with the low interest rate until further notice," Dombret said in Leipzig.

"There is no question that monetary policy must be normalized as soon as it becomes clear that the inflation will reach the objective of just below 2 percent on a sustained basis.
