Text size Aa Aa

ROME (Reuters) - Italy's deputy prime minister said on Wednesday that new commitments made by steel giant ArcelorMittal <MT.AS> for its planned takeover of the Italian steelmaker Ilva were not sufficient on labour plans.

"On the labour plan I think we are still in a situation that is not satisfactory," Luigi Di Maio told reporters after meeting ArcelorMittal representatives in Rome.

He added however that the new commitments made by the Luxembourg-based company showed progress on environmental issues.
