German finance minister says relations good with Italy

Berlin, June 13 - Germany's finance minister on Thursday said his government's relationship with Italy was very positive, and that he expected the current administration to carry on with economic reforms. "Relations between the Italian and German governments are in full confidence and very good," Wolfgang Schaeuble told ANSA on the eve of a summit in Rome of economy and labor ministers from Italy, France, Germany and Spain. He added that he believed Italian Premier Enrico Letta would move forward with the economic reforms started by his predecessor, Mario Monti, whose term at the height of the euro crisis was marked by controversial austerity measures aimed at thwarting a Greece-like disaster, but in turn are widely blamed for deepening Italy's ongoing recession. "I'm confident that Letta's government, members of whom I've known for years in different circumstances, will successfully continue (the policies)," said Schaeuble.
