MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Thursday the government was not at risk over a dispute involving the Turin-Lyon high speed rail link.
Speaking on the sidelines of a conference, Salvini said he hoped a solution could be found soon.
Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has promised to find a solution by Friday.
The rail project, meant to connect the cities of Turin and Lyon, has been delayed for months because Italy’s 5-Star Movement opposes it while coalition partner the League is in favour.
