Italy fighting for 'growth, fairness' at EU summit

(see related story) Brussels, February 7 - Premier Mario Monti said Thursday that Italy will be fighting for the promotion of "growth and fairness" at the Brussels summit on the European Union's budget for the next seven years, which starts later in the day. Italy is against calls from Britain, Germany and other northern European nations for cuts to the European Commission's proposed budget for the the 2014-2020 period. The 27-state EU failed to reach an agreement on the budget at a summit in November.
