Japanese PM says Italian economy 'dependent' on Renzi (ANSA) - The Hague, March 24 - The Italian economy "is dependent" on the actions of Premier Matteo Renzi's government, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Monday before a summit between the two leaders. The world will be watching Italian developments closely, Abe added.

The two men are meeting before a major global summit on nuclear security that will bring together leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized economies for two days of meetings that will also include intense discussions on Ukraine and Russia's role in the crisis there.

The G7 meetings in The Hague, including the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, will provide Renzi an opportunity for bilateral meetings with both Japan and Canada.
