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.
