U.S.'s Kerry says confident Italy will overcome vote deadlock

ROME, Feb 28 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry expressed confidence on Thursday that Italy would get through the messy aftermath of this week's election, which left no party with a majority and fuelled fears of renewed market instability.

"I am really personally very confident about Italy's ability and desire to work through the complicated, obviously, returns and results," Kerry told reporters during a visit to Rome. (Reporting By Arshad Mohammed; editing by James Mackenzie)
