ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s government will try to respect EU fiscal rules and honor pre-existing budget commitments, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Tuesday, looking to calm investor fears over the coalition’s economic plans.

“We will look to respect all the rules, all the constraints and all the commitments made. We can make this country grow and make Italians better off without irritating those who watch us from on high,” Salvini told reporters.

“We will try to be good and convincing.”
