'Enhance diversity, No to fragmentation' says Renzi

(ANSA) - Rome, September 19 - The Italian government on Friday said Scotland's No to independence from the UK would boost the EU. "The Italian government, also in its capacity as duty president of the EU, hails the result of the vote democratically expressed by the Scottish people," the premier's office said. "The EU will certainly benefit from a renewed commitment of the United Kingdom to strengthening our common action. Italian Premier Matteo Renzi said the vote should encourage countries "to enhance diversity while saying no to fragmentation."
