Renzi says Italy is not threatening Europe on budget but giving advice

Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi said on Monday that the position of Italy on the mid-term review of the 2014-2020 European budget is not to threaten the European Union, but a way to suggest a better way forward. In an interview with Radio24, Renzi said that Italy is "not threatening" Europe, but giving "tender suggestions" to them. In the past few days, Italy has repeatedly said that it might impose its veto on the review if the EU didn't change its policies on immigration and renounce to austerity. "I am sick and tired of those who say 'Europe is demanding this from us'. We are Italy, we are strong, we broke our backs. Either Italy plays offense or if we want to go on with 'Europe is asking it', let's just call back the technical government, they were so good...", Renzi added ironically.
