Padoan, Italian debt is solid and not 'on the table'-update2

Economy minister says Italy's borrowing levels are manageable

(ANSA) - Istanbul, February 9 - Italy has high debt levels but these are manageable and not "on the table" in any negotiations, Economy Minister Pier Carlo Padoan said Monday. With the economic recovery that many believe is beginning in Italy, debt will be even more manageable, Padoan said in response to comparisons between the economies of Italy and Greece, which has troubling levels of debt.
    Greece is attempting to renegotiate its debt repayments, and the uncertainty is leading some financial markets to compare the two European countries.
