Renzi 'hard nut to crack' for Merkel - Die Zeit

Italian PM has become 'angry young man' says German weekly

(ANSA) - Berlin, January 28 - German Chancellor Angela Merkel will "find a hard nut to crack" in Italian Premier Matteo Renzi when he flies in for talks in Berlin Friday, German weekly Die Zeit said Thursday. "Renzi's message is clear: we've done our bit, now it's up to others," it said. "When the Italian arrives in Berlin tomorrow, Angela Merkel will try to make him change his mind. And she'll find a hard nut to crack". Referring to Italy's reluctance to OK three billion euros of migrant aid to Turkey, Die Zeit described the transformation of Renzi from "model child of southern Europe" to "angry young man".
