MILAN, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Italy Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he would meet managers of ArcelorMittal on Wednesday to discuss the group's decision to pull out of an agreement to buy troubled steel group Ilva and insisted the contract be respected.
"A contract was agreed and we won't bend on this. We expect that commitments be respected," he told reporters in Milan on Tuesday.
ArcelorMittal said on Monday it was abandoning a deal to buy Ilva's huge steel works in the southern city of Taranto after Rome reneged on a pledge to give it immunity from prosecution over environmental damage at the heavily polluting plant.
