(ANSA) - Frankfurt, September 26 - Italian Finance Minister
Vittorio Grilli deflected comments on Wednesday by a German
journalist who asked if he had gone to Frankfurt to "ask for
money".
"We have not asked for money and I'm not here for a
special reason. We keep in touch because dialogue must be
constant," Grilli said.
Grilli was in Frankfurt for meetings with Bundesbank
President Jens Weidmann.
The Italian minister said that though his country is
facing challenges, it can "succeed alone".
"Italy is strong enough to solve its own problems. Despite
the difficulties faced, it is fundamentally sound," Weidmann
commented.
Bundesbank's chief Weidmann also responded to the
journalist, saying "We need to exchange and compare notes
frequently...this was the only reason for our meeting".
"Italy has put in place ambitious reforms and has achieved
important advances that have positive effects and will benefit
the entire eurozone," Weidmann said.
