Rome, February 12 - Ex-Italian premier Silvio
Berlusconi on Tuesday dismissed an apparent call for a
centre-left government from United States Ambassador to Italy
David Thorne.
Centre-right leader Berlusconi told an ANSA forum that he
had "never taken ambassadors' opinions 100% (seriously)" because
it was the US government's view that counted.
He recalled that he had always been "extremely close" to
presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, so "there are no
worries on our part" concerning the US view on the February
24-25 Italian elections.
Thorne was quoted in the Italian media Tuesday as saying it
would be desirable for Italy to have a stable centre-left
government.
The centre-left coalition is leading the polls but
Berlusconi is closing the gap thanks to a media blitz and a
series of tax pledges.
