Italian PM offends the Finns - again.

Berlusconi manages to offend Finland again

PARMA, Italy, June 23 (UPI) -- Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has raised the hackles of the Finnish government by saying he used his masculine charms on Finland's female president.

The timing of the remark was particularly grating to the Finns.Berlusconi spoke at the opening of the new European Food Safety Authority in Parma, Italy.

Finland wanted host the agency, but Berlusconi said he turned on the charm to talk Finnish President Tarja Halonen into withdrawing her country's bid.

"I had to use all my playboy tactics, even if they have not been used for some time," the 68-year-old Berlusconi said.

While Berlusconi's spokesman downplayed the remark, the Finnish government called in the Italian ambassador over the issue, the BBC said.

In 2001, Berlusconi told the European Union Finland did not deserve the food safety agency as "Finns don't even know what prosciutto is."
