Szijjarto: Europe ‘should be grateful’ to Salvini

"The whole of Europe should be grateful" to Matteo Salvini, former interior minister of Italy, for "saving his homeland and saving Europe," Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Facebook on Saturday.

Szijjarto noted that Salvini was facing trial for blocking a ship of illegal migrants off the coasts of Italy in 2019.

Szijjarto insisted that Salvini had tried to “prevent the violation of European borders and the trampling on European laws”. “Grazie Matteo!” he added.
