The Minister for European Affairs, the South, Cohesion Policies and the NRRP, Raffaele Fitto, met in Rome with the German Minister for Europe and Climate, Anna Luhrmann.

Italy and Germany, founding countries of the European Union, not only have very deep ties, but also play a fundamental role and share important responsibilities. Their collaboration is crucial for the advancement of the European project," said Minister Fitto.

"We spoke above all about enlargement in the light of the results of the december European Council and also in view of the March Summit. For my part, I reiterated Italy's support for the European aspirations of Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia, but also the opportunity for the European Union to devote similar attention to the European path of the Western Balkan countries that represent a strategic area of fundamental interest for Europe. We also had an in-depth exchange of views on the reforms needed to enable the enlargement process to take place in a sustainable manner for our countries and for the Union".

"Finally, we discussed energy, migration and other issues at the heart of the European agenda – concluded Minister Fitto – and we met in Brussels for next 20 February on the occasion of the General Affairs Council".
