BERLIN, June 25 (Reuters) - A senior German official said on Wednesday it did not seem that other countries in the European Union wanted to exclude certain investments from their deficit calculations.

"In my discussions with my Italian colleagues (and others) I haven't had the impression that there is a push to exclude certain spending from the fiscal rules," the official said. (Reporting by Noah Barkin)
