Renzi stirs up E.U. row ahead of eurozone meeting

Eurozone leaders are meeting on Friday to discuss the issue of public deficits and debt, as France and Italy are in breach of the EU rules.
Ahead of the meeting, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi stirred up a row with outgoing EU commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso, who criticised his decision to publish a commission letter warning him about the budget deficit.
Renzi said he could not understand Barroso's "surprise" about the published letter, given that the Financial Times and Italian media had already "anticipated" it.
