Italy, Lega Nord leader Salvini to Berlusconi: “Stop supporting Merkel and we will be allied again!”

During an interview to Italian Magazine “Panorama“, the leader of Lega Nord (Europe of Nations and Freedom) Matteo Salvini said he is negotiating with former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi (EPP) a political alliance for the next national elections. The aim is to recreate the unity of the Italian centre-right. He also added they agree on almost all the issues but he asked him to stop supporting German Chancellor Angela Merkel at European level as conditio sine qua non to continue the dialogue.  (Panorama, Corriere della Sera)
