Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said in an interview with a German TV channel on Tuesday that the issuance of joint bonds in favor of the eurozone countries or the so-called “Eurobond” will not make the Germans bear the responsibility to pay the Italian debt.
Conte stated in the interview with German state television “ARD” that the issuance of common euro bonds “does not mean that German citizens will pay one euro of Italian debt .. it (euro bonds) simply means finding a common way to deal with crises and create market conditions” Better to get cash to fund reconstruction efforts after the end of the Corona virus. ”
Italians are still subject to strict orders to stay at home, leaving only for work, emergencies and unavoidable tasks such as buying food and medicine or taking dogs out.
