With spending on armaments at 2% of GDP “fibrillation” for the holding of the executive
No government crisisas long as the premier Mario Draghi take into account the no of M5s on the increase in military spending. The pentastellato president Giuseppe Conteinterviewed by Lucia Annunziata to Half an hour more‘, made it clear that if Palazzo Chigi were to pull straight on the hypothesis of immediately carrying the shopping for the armaments at 2% of GDP, it would be a forcing that would produce “fibrillation” for the holding of the executive.
“M5s – explained Conte – is absolutely not thinking at this moment of a government crisis, but we are the relative majority force and if it is a question of discussing a new address we will assert our presence. The government cannot force and yes it would take on the responsibility of putting you in fibrillation. I hope in a perspective of common sense “.
Conte has made it known that he wants to confront Draghi in the coming daysat the same time warning the premier that the ministers of the Movement, in the CDM, if necessary, “will represent these positions. If the government does not listen to us – underlined Conte – it confronts us with a fait accompli, it is the government that forces and does not listen to the relative majority force. Faced with the instability of this conflict – the ex-premier urged – we cannot respond with an emotional reaction and some pushes to indiscriminate rearmament. We cannot distract resources from the pillars of security of Italian citizens, in this moment of great economic and social difficulty, and investing extraordinary funds in rearmament. We are absolutely against it “.
To those who point out that the increase in military spending to 2% of GDP is a commitment signed by our country with the Atlantic AllianceConte replies that “I have never doubted that the agreements made with NATO are to be respected but the timing hypothesized eight years ago cannot be an indisputable dogma”.
“Above all – he added – our allies know the suffering of Italy after two years of pandemic, the greater difficulties compared to other countries. On this point we can have a curve that does not lead us to distract from expenses necessary for citizens. “. As for the war in Ukraine, for Conte Italy has the possibility “to play an important role within the EU, and it is good that Prime Minister Draghi can hear Putin in the coming days”.
