Commissioner says EC is 'interpreter, not teacher

(ANSA) - Milan, September 12 - European Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Jyrki Katainen responded sharply on Friday after Premier Matteo Renzi said Italy did not need lessons from the EU on respecting budget rules. "We aren't teachers but interpreters of how well the countries respect the commitments they have made and the promises they have made to the other countries," Katainen told the website of Italian daily Il Fatto Quotidiano.
