Italy following closely FCA-Renault deal but won't set guidelines-PM

MILAN, June 3 (Reuters) - Italy's government does not expect to set guidelines for merger talks between Fiat Chrysler and French rival Renault though it follows the deal closely and has an interest in preserving jobs in the sector, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said.

"It is not the government's task to steer the deal," Conte told reporters on Monday on the sidelines of an event.

"But it's certainly the government's job to make sure employment levels are preserved, including in satellite activities which are fundamental. It's definitely something I follow with great attention." (Reporting by Giuseppe Fonte, writing by Valentina Za, editing by Giulio Piovaccari)
