BOLOGNA, Italy, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti described as a 'remote hypothesis' the possibility of Monte Paschi bank being nationalised, when asked to comment on a television talk show on Friday.
Monti was talking to the La7 network as questions grew about central bank oversight of the historic lender following the uncovering of nearly $1 billion of losses in complex derivatives deals.
