Renzi says all terror measures taken, no specific threat

Premier meets party whips after Brussels attacks

(ANSA) - Rome, March 23 - Premier Matteo Renzi told a meeting of Italian party whips on Wednesday that there was no evidence that Italy was facing specific threat of a terrorist attack. "Like all our partners, we have taken all the necessary security measures, although there is no evidence of a specific threat in Italy," Renzi told the meeting called after Tuesday's terror attacks in Brussels, ANSA sources said. The premier also said closer security cooperation was needed among European States to combat the threat.
    "It's necessary to tighten the intelligence mechanisms among the European countries and more besides," he said, according to sources, at a meeting featuring whips both from opposition and ruling-coalition parties. "It's necessary to enhance Europol and work on a common structure".
