(ANSA) - Rome, October 23 - The Italian government on Wednesday denied claims that the country's secret services were aware of alleged spying on Italian phone calls by US intelligence agency NSA.

"I feel I can exclude the possibility that the (Italian intelligence) services knew," Marco Minniti, the undersecretary with the intelligence brief, told parliament's intelligence supervisory committee Copasir.
