Giorgia Meloni, Italy’s Prime Minister visited Brussels. The author of an Associated Press article in the US reflected on this.
Raf Cesart writes in the US newspaper that Italian PM Giorgia Meloni visited Brussels on Thursday to make it clear that Italy will cooperate on common EU affairs. He added that the politician and her party had previously raised doubts among many Brussels politicians about their principles, which question liberal democracy, Mandiner writes.
He writes that Meloni’s criticisms are similar to those heard in Poland and Hungary. The self-identified illiberal Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has, according to the author, been increasingly obstructing the EU for years, which requires the full agreement of its members to make the most important decisions.
