Ponte Stretto, Salvini: “It will be done. And on the Tav France it will do its part”

The words to the French Le Figaro and the Spanish El Pais on the day in which the owner of the MIT flies to Luxembourg for the Transport Council of the European Union

The bridge over the Strait of Messina will be built. He scans it the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister Matteo Salvini in two interviews with foreign media and published today, in the French Le Figaro and in the Spanish El Pais on the day in which the MIT owner flies to Luxembourg for the European Union Transport Council.

On Le Figaro, Salvini clarifies that on the Turin-Lyon high-speed train “France must do its part”. Regarding the stable connection between Calabria and Sicily, the Deputy Prime Minister underlines that “it will make it possible to connect Palermo and Berlin”, giving substance to a project that has been talked about for decades with work starting “in the summer of 2024 to become operational in 2032” managing to create “unprecedented jobs and wealth” for the South.

Speaking of European funds, Salvini underlines that his ministry “does not intend to give up a single euro”.

On El Pais, Salvini confirms his satisfaction with the result of Popolari and Vox in the recent administrative elections, hoping that in view of the 2024 European elections “voters will give important numbers to the Popular, Conservative and Identitari axis”, underlining that the failure to merge the groups center-right in Brussels was impossible for “some foreign delegations”. A mistake, according to Salvini, because “a large right-wing family would have more weight” in Brussels.

And again: “The EPP must decide which side it is on” because in Italy – the Deputy Prime Minister reiterates – “as a coalition we vote against the ban on surrogacy and surrogacy but in Brussels they have a different view. I hope that the EPP decides once and for all which side it is on. And the Spanish vote will be very important for this”.

From Spain to Portugal: “Next week I will meet André Ventura, from Chega” explains Salvini, anticipating the Portuguese leader’s visit to Rome. Speaking of the bridge over the Strait, Salvini also warns the Spanish press that it would be “a competitive advantage for all of Italy”.
