Thought for the day

"I offered my opponents a deal: "if they stop telling lies about me, I will stop telling the truth about them"." -- Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952

“A great Italian statesman” and “reliable partner”. This is how French President Emmanuel Macron defined Mario Draghi after the fall of the government. “Work” done by Draghi “provides a very solid base that Italy can count on in the coming months and years “, emphasizes in the note the tenant of the Elysée Palace, who welcomed the Italian prime minister, praising his “Faultless commitment” to reforms. “During the French presidency” of the EU in the first half of 2022, Macron reminded Italy Draghi gave “unshakable support in providing European answers to our common challenges”especially in the face of aggression against Ukraine by Russia ”. Advocating “a relationship of trust built up in recent years,” Macron also stressed how the signing of the Quirinal Treaty in November last year “gave new impetus” to the “friendship” between the two countries.
