Italy Ďdeterminedí to avoid EU debt procedure

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said Tuesday his government is determined to avoid triggering an EU procedure for excessive debt levels.

The European Commission last week put Italy on notice about its snowballing debt, as well as its deteriorating deficit position, reopening a political battle with Rome.

The move by the EUís executive arm against Italyís bloated budget begins a complicated process that, if approved by eurozone ministers, could result in an unprecedented fine of more than three billion euros (3.4 billion dollars), a prospect Conte said he hoped to avoid.

Italyís far-right Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has vowed not to yield to the EU.

But Conte said that, when he met both Salvini and Deputy Prime Minister Luigi di Maio on Monday, both were "in complete agreement" that any procedure should be avoided.

"The negotiation with the European Commission and with our European Union partners will see the government absolutely determined to avoid, in the coming months, a procedure for excessive debt," Conte told a gathering of business leaders in Rome.

However, the coalition government is under pressure. Conte threatened last week to resign unless the two parties in the governing populist coalition - Salviniís League and di Maioís Five Star Movement - stopped squabbling.

"I want a clear, unequivocal and speedy response," Conte said, calling for "loyal collaboration" from all ministers.

Italyís debt ratio, at 132 percent of gross domestic product, is the second-biggest in the eurozone after Greece.

European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker warned that Italy was on the verge of entering into the excessive deficit procedure "for years" if reforms were not adopted.

"I would like to avoid that and this will depend on the coming commitments to be taken by the Italian government," Juncker told Politico in Brussels.
