The new Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni declared on Thursday before her first trip to Brussels that she is “ready to face big problems” including the ongoing energy crisis in Europe. TASR took over the report from the DPA agency.
“Italy’s voice in Europe will be strong: we are ready to face big problemsstarting with the energy crisis, to work together on a timely and effective solution in order to support families and businesses,” the politician wrote on the Facebook social network.
In Brussels, Meloniová will meet with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the head of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsolová. This is her first trip abroad.
Meloniová, head of the extreme right-wing Brotherhood of Italy (FdI) party, took office as prime minister on October 22. She is the first ever woman at the head of the Italian government and at the same time the first representative of the extreme right in this position since the end of the Second World War.
