EU’s commission president says Italy is at the heart of Europe, deserves respect

The president of the European Commission said on Tuesday that Italy is a pillar of the European Union and that the country deserves respect.

“Italy yesterday as today deserves respect and trust,” Jean-Claude Juncker told an economic conference in Brussels. He added that “Italy’s place is at the heart of Europe.”

The remark comes after rows between the newly formed anti-establishment Italian government and EU commissioners.
