Merkel calls Letta, supports coalition with Berlusconi's PdL


Berlin, April 29 - German Chancellor Angela Merkel
called new Italian Premier Enrico Letta to congratulate him on
forming a government to end Italy's two-month political deadlock
at the weekend.
"She wished him lots of success and invited him to Berlin,"
said German government spokesman Steffen Seibert on Monday.
Seibert added that it made no difference to Berlin that
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party was
the main partner in the broad coalition administration along
with Letta's centre-left Democratic Party (PD).
"We always said that we would support any government that
emerged from this difficult situation," said Seibert referring
to the long impasse that followed February's inconclusive
general election.
Merkel and other European leaders expressed frustration at
Italy's responses to the eurozone debt crisis towards the end of
Berlusconi's third stint as premier, between 2008 and 2011.
A peak in the crisis forced Berlusconi to resign as premier
in November 2011 and make way for Mario Monti's emergency
technocrat administration, which Letta's government replaces.
