Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, gave a year-end press conference on Tuesday calling the EU to move away from the current economic policies and remember its core values

EU may explode mainly due to wrong economic policies but foremost because it betrayed its principles “which are not economic ones,” Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said at the year-end press conference on Tuesday.

Italian news agency, ANSA, said that Renzi told Italian citizens that “If 2015 was the year of reform, 2016 will be the year of values.” The Italian Premier emphasized that government's 2016 budget law “puts money in schools, universities, culture and the civil service.”
