ROME (Reuters) - There is no risk that the Italian government will collapse, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Wednesday ahead of a do-or-die confidence vote in the Senate over a contested decree on security and immigration.

“The government is absolutely not at risk,” Salvini, who is the leader of the right-wing League party, said in a statement.
