"On immigration, we managed to change Europe's point of view. On Tunisia, flexibility on the use of funds and on the first steps for a European sovereign fund, there are Italian positions. The Minister of Tourism? Will she clarify in the classroom on Wednesday ", says the premier

"The conclusions of the Council are an excellent starting point for us: on immigration, on Tunisia, on the flexibility in the use of funds as regards economic matters, on the first steps for a European sovereign fund, there are the Italian positions. So the draft conclusions are absolutely satisfactory", says Giorgia Meloni during the press point in Brussels, where the prime minister participates in the work of the European Council, scheduled for today and tomorrow.

As for immigration,"we have really managed to change the point of view, and it was unthinkable 8 months ago", explains the Prime Minister according to which the age-old division "between countries of first arrival and countries of secondary movements" has been overcome, arriving at a "single approach that solves everyone's problems, which is the one on the external dimension". Important, Meloni underlines, is that there is a paragraph dedicated to Tunisia in the draft: "Not in the chapter on migration but in the one dedicated to external relations. This illustrates the idea of ​​strategic partnership with the countries of North Africa, which is an important change of pace for us". On the resources needed for this type of strategy, she adds, "the first steps are being taken today".

As for the criticisms against the ECB made yesterday in Parliament, the prime minister reiterates that she "said what I think" and claims the government's commitment to mortgages: "An issue on which we have been sensitive from the start", she says, citing the Balance. "But more needs to be done."

Finally - prompted by the question from the Foglio - regarding the political case of these hours, the mess on the agenda put forward by the Pd against Visibilia editore, the company attributable to the minister Santanchè, and approved by the government - Meloni avoids the controversy: "I do not it must be interpreted politically. The minister will be in the Chamber on Wednesday and that will be the day on which she will clarify her position".
