(ANSA) - Rome, August 6 - Italian Premier Mario Monti on
Monday said he does not wish to put any limitations on a
country's parliament following strong backlash from Germany to
his interview with German weekly Der Spiegel.
"I did not intend to wish for any limitation to the
parliamentary control of governments which, on the contrary, I
feel should be fortified. I just wanted to underline the need to
take steps toward European integration," which "may necessitate
some flexibility".
In an interview published on Sunday, Monti said that "if
governments let themselves be bound completely by the decisions
of their parliaments without maintaining their own scope for
negotiation, Europe is more likely to break up than it is to see
closer integration".
Criticism came from all spectrums of German politics,
including the Bundestag and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
"I maintain that every government has the right to explain
itself and interact in a dynamic, transparent and effective
manner with the parliament," he added.
