German President sees no risk of Italy 'contagion'


Berlin, February 28 - German President Joachim
Glauck on Thursday said he was not worried about a possible risk
of "contagion" following Italy's inconclusive legislative
elections earlier this week.
In a joint press conference with Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano, visiting Germany since Tuesday, Glauck said that
"Germans can't say we fear the risk of a contagion in Europe".
"We don't at all think that Europe is at the end of its
days. Of course there is a debate and we have to understand and
see what Italy will express".
Earlier this week, the head of Germany's Social Democratic
Party (SPD), Peer Steinbrueck, caused a diplomatic kerfuffle
when he said that "two clowns" - Silvio Berlusconi and Beppe
Grillo - won Italy's legislative elections.
Following the remarks, Napolitano cancelled a scheduled
meeting with Steinbrueck, who is the SPD's candidate for
chancellor in this year's German federal elections.
Napolitano slammed Steinbruek's comments as "completely
misplaced, if not worse".
