Undersecretary Amendola says it’s now time to change EU immigration policies and pursue a common defence project

"For the first time we are faced with a massive internal migration flow between European countries, and we have finally found the courage to dust down the Temporary Protection Directive" Undersecretary Amendola declared in an interview with the Italian newspaper Avvenire. "After decades of delays, on the occasion of the latest European Council we conceived a common foreign and defence policy project. It is a change in perspective, linked to common investments and commitment to peacekeeping missions outside EU borders, which Italy cannot fail to join."

Undersecretary Amendola, "Attacking Minister Guerini means attacking Italian diplomacy. It's high time for a common foreign policy in Europe"

"The Russian statement is a declaration of powerlessness. Attacking Minister Guerini does not show strength, rather it’s a sign of weakness", Undersecretary Amendola declared it in an interview with La Stampa. Amendola expects next week’s European Council to "make Europe catch up on energy, foreign policy and security. If we want to play a role, we have no other way but to push more on integration.”
