European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told Austrian newspapers that the European Commission would not interfere in Italy’s budget planning, but there is still a good chance to propose changes if necessary.

‘It is up to Italian policy-makers to find rules and measures that will allow Italy to remain within the agreed budgetary targets,’ Juncker said in an interview with dailies Der Standard and Kurier and weekly Der Falter, that was published on Saturday.

‘We will assess the Italian budget without anger and fondness and propose changes if necessary,’ he added.
