Italians 'ready to give us a hand'

Private saving without equal, now invested in foreign bonds

(ANSA) - Lyon, October 9 - Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday he was sure Italians "are ready to give us a hand" and bring down the bond spread by converting their foreign bonds into Italian ones.
    "The strength of Italy, which none of our friends sitting at the table today has, neither the French nor the Spanish, is private saving that has no equal in the world," he said at a G6 meeting in Lyon.
    "For the moment it is silent and is invested in foreign bonds. I am convinced that the Italians are ready to give us a hand".
