ROME — Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi said he is not worried by an impending prostitution trial, in his first public comments since he was indicted.

Berlusconi dodged questions about the case during a news conference Wednesday on economic themes in Rome. He said that he would not be speaking about the case "out of love of my country" but added: "I can only say one thing, I'm not worried at all."

The 74-year-old Italian leader was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges he paid a 17-year-old Moroccan girl for sex, and then used his influence to cover it up.
