ROME (Reuters) - Italian Economy Minister Giovanni Tria did not offer his resignation due to tensions over next year's budget, and in particular with the 5-Star Movement's promised universal income, an economy ministry source said on Thursday.

La Repubblica and La Stampa newspapers reported on Thursday that Tria, who is not a member of either party in the ruling coalition, told Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte he was willing to step down amid mounting pressure from 5-Star.

The reports "are baseless", the source said.
