Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has offered his advice to his Italian politicians by sarcastically wishing them luck if they don’t wish to follow the EU’s rules and policies the economy.

Speaking to Italian daily Corriere della Sera, Tsipras advised the Italian government to agree to a settlement with the EU in order to avoid further endangering the Italian economy. For their part, Rome appears to be paying attention, as they have slowly shifted in their negotiating approach with Brussels.

Tsipras’ comments came after he met with a group of Italian political movers and shakers, where he excusing himself for not having done more to rock the boat of the Eurozone’s fiscal pact. He did, however, warn Italy’s current government that it would be more beneficial to follow through on a deal with Brussels instead of looking into the possibility of enacting more drastic measures, including the possibility of an Italian exit from the euro.
