(updates previous) Brussels, May 29 - Italian Minister
of European Affairs Enzo Moavero on Wednesday slammed comments
on Italy made by European Energy Commissioner Guenther
Oettinger, calling them "superficial and isolated".
Oettinger described Italy as ''almost ungovernable'' in
an alarm-raising speech in which he blasted the state of Europe
as "a restructuring case" in Brussels Tuesday evening.
A member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian
Democratic Union (CDU) party, Oettinger made his speech to
German, Belgian and Luxembourgian Chambers of Commerce, then
reported on Wednesday by the German daily Bild and the UK's
Daily Mail.
"I'm worried about countries that, overall, are almost
ungovernable, such as Bulgaria, Romania and Italy," Oettinger, a
German and, was quoted as saying.
"In Italy, there is no problem of governability," Italian
Minister Moavero retorted on Wednesday in Brussels, where he was
working on the EU's Competitiveness Council.
"I do not know the motives for these curious statements. In
Italy there is no problem of governability," Moavero continued.
"Such superficial and isolated considerations reveal a lack
of information and institutional grace, the author of which
(should) assume responsibility".
