MOSCOW (Reuters) - Italian deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini on Monday criticised the euro but said Italy had no plans to leave the single currency.

"Leaving the euro is not in the programme of this government," Salvini, who is also interior minister and leader of the right-wing League, said at a news conference in Moscow.

He reiterated his frequent criticism of the single currency, calling it "an experiment that began badly."
