The Italian government has asked its banks to halt their activities during the debt crisis and said it wants to keep the country’s economy afloat.
The Prime Minister has also proposed that the country should be able to borrow in the euro, the country is currently unable to do.
The government says it needs the ECB’s support to ensure that the Italian banks remain solvent.
The European Central Bank, which is also a member of the troika, has said that the Greek banks are now more stable than they were at the end of last year, when they had to seek new capital to pay off their debts.
However, some European leaders have warned that the crisis is likely to spill over into other countries and that the euro zone could fall apart.
The crisis has already led to the postponement of the countrys general elections, which are due to be held in 2019.
