Renzi govt calls confidence vote on international missions (ANSA) - Rome, March 12 - Premier Matteo Renzi's government announced Wednesday that it was putting a decree extending Italy's international military missions, including its involvement in the NATO-led ISAF mission in Afghanistan, to a confidence vote in parliament. Italian governments often call confidence votes to limit debate and speed the passage of legislation through parliament.

But there is a risk, as Renzi's government, which was sworn in last month, will collapse it if fails to win the vote, which will take place from 14:30 local time Thursday.
