EU can't treat us like this - Di Maio

We want to explain our case says deputy premier

(ANSA) - Rome, November 22 - Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio on Thursday called on the European Commission to change its approach after it rejected the government's budget plan for 2019. "The infringement procedure must be discussed and I believe in discussion," 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Di Maio told reporters at the Lower House. "I hope for dialogue and debate because we want to explain our case".
    He said he did not feel guilty about the government's plans, saying they would help pensioners, the unemployed and young people. "We have a different way to approach the debt issue and I realise that some people feel disorientated," Di Maio said.
    "But you cannot treat Italy like this after years of being massacred".
