Italians Have Constructive Praise for Putin-Trump Summit

July 19, 2018 (EIRNS)—Among the few viable political reactions in Europe, Italian Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini tweeted: “I would like the next summit to take place in Italy, to speak with energy and courage about security, peace, jobs and economic growth. Good job, Presidents!” Minister Salvini heads the Lega party, which is part of Italy’s government.

Giorgia Meloni, head of the Fratelli d’Italia party, stated:

“The meeting between the U.S. and Russian Presidents [was] positive, hoping that it puts an end to the insane policy of hostility pursued by the Obama Administration. Russia is a fundamental interlocutor for Europe and the West in trade, security, and anti-Islamic fundamentalism policies. A new dialogue is also the basis to create a lasting peace, reassure Eastern European states, and definitely solve the Ukrainian crisis.”
