Italy’s Di Maio reiterates support for euro, says won’t change deficit goal

Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio on Thursday reiterated Rome had no plans to leave the single currency, but it would not change its 2019 budget deficit target despite a rejection by the European Commission.

Di Maio, who is also the leader of the ruling 5-Star Movement, said in a radio interview that the government coalition was monitoring the banking system.
