ROME (Reuters) - The Italian government is following talks between Fiat Chrysler (FCHA.MI) and Peugeot owner PSA (PEUP.PA) over a possible tie-up, Industry Minister Stefano Patuanelli said on Wednesday.

Patuanelli told reporters he could not comment further since a potential merger of the two was “a market operation”.

The two carmakers said earlier on Wednesday they were holding discussions aimed at creating one of the world’s leading auto groups.
