LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - Italy's finance minister told his euro zone peers during a closed-door meeting in Luxembourg on Monday that details of Italy's budgetary plans for 2019 were still under discussion within the government, a European Union source said.

Giovanni Tria was asked to explain Rome's plans for a large deficit in the next three years by the French and Dutch finance ministers, the source said, although the topic was not on the agenda of the monthly Eurogroup meeting of euro zone finance ministers.

He explained the government plans but stressed that they were not final yet and details were still under discussion, the source said.
