Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini excoriated German Chancellor
Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday, accusing
them of having ruined Europe -- after Merkel said he wasnt welcome in
her center-right European party.
"It is we who do not want to have anything to do with Merkel and with
Emmanuel Macron and with those who have ruined this Union, he said in San
Severo, according to Libero Quotidiano.
We want to save Europe, which is not that of bureaucrats, bankers,
financiers and those who have ruined it in recent years," he said.
Salvini is leader of the right-wing League, which is in coalition with the
anti-establishment Five-Star Movement. But he has quickly become the de
facto face of the government abroad in his role as interior minister,
often overshadowing Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, as he has fought to cut
immigration from Africa and has formed alliances with other nationalists
His scathing remarks were in response to comments Merkel made to
Suddeutsche Zeitung, where she addressed the question of whether the
League would be allowed in her European Peoples Party (EPP)
"It is clear that for example as regards the policy on migrants we have
very different approaches. This is already a reason why the EPP will not
open up to Mr. Salvini's party, she said.
She spoke a week before Europeans go to polls to elect candidates to the
European Parliament. Nationalist and anti-immigration parties are expected
to do well, particularly in France, Italy, Hungary and the U.K., amid
long-standing concerns about mass migration onto the continent.
In Britain, the anti-European Union Brexit Party is expected to come first
over anger at the failure of the British government to leave the bloc
after the Brexit vote in 2016.
"They are certainly important, special elections, Merkel said. Many
people are worried about Europe and so am I.
Salvini has frequently targeted Merkel and Macron as he sought to defend
his governments stance on migration. In January he responded to criticism
from Macron by accusing France of turning back migrants at the border.
"I don't take lessons on humanity and generosity from Macron, he later
