MILAN (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump told the Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in a recent meeting in Washington the United States was ready to offer Italy help in funding its public debt next year, Il Corriere della Sera reported on Friday.

Citing three unnamed Italian senior officials, the newspaper said Trump made the offer to Conte during their meeting in Washington at the end of July.

The paper said the premier spoke of the offer to officials upon his return from Washington but did not explained what form it would take.

Conte's office could not immediately be reached for comment.
