Italian populist Senator Matteo Salvini has hit back against criticism from Italian leftists over his recent meeting with Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán and Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
Member of the Italian Democratic Party (PD) attacked Salvini over the meeting, accusing him of doing a “U-turn” on Prime Minister Mario Draghi, whose pro-European Union government Salvini currently supports.
Enrico Letta, a former Prime Minister of Italy and secretary of the PD, stated that Salvini’s move was akin to a football fan put on the shirt of a rival club, claiming Salvini was not credible, newspaper Il Giornale reports.
“Salvini’s meeting with Orbán is very serious. Not only because they are anti-European but also for Italy because those two countries are enemies of the national interest. If it had been for Orbán the money for recovery would never have come,” former PD minister Peppe Provenzano alleged.
