Italy's deviation unacceptable - Juncker

Otherwise other nations would cover us in insults

(ANSA) - Brussels, October 16 - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker suggested on Tuesday that the EU was unlikely to give the thumbs up to Italy's draft budget, which foresees the country's deficit rising to 2.4% of GDP next year.
    "If we accepted the slip, some European countries would cover us with insults and tirades with the accusation we are being too flexible with Italy," Juncker told Italian media.
