Rome, June 28 - Many people in Italy are fed up
with "Euro-rhetoric" that does not lead to solutions to ordinary
people's struggles during the economic crisis, Premier Enrico
Letta said at the end of a two-day European Union summit in
Brussels.
But Letta also stressed that the EU has to some degree
provided an answer with the agreements it reached at Thursday
and Friday's summit, including measures to combat youth
unemployment.
"There is a very strong feeling of impatience with
Euro-rhetoric, both in Italy's political parties and in certain
segments of the population," Letta told a press conference.
"There was a need for concrete deeds like those achieved at
this summit".
Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) and
the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) campaigned hard
against EU-imposed austerity in the run-up to February's
inconclusive general election.
That vote ended in a virtual three-way tie among the PdL,
M5S and the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) that led to two
months of political deadlock before Letta's left-right
government was sworn in late in April.
