9:30 am
in europe so here absolutely of transatlantic trade may be in jeopardy and trump right now is saying that you know what the u.s. will outlast europe and it's straight standoff and we're going to negotiate hard to make this an american terms what's going to happen is europe just going to capitulate what does this mean i think trump is becoming the best ally the of the utopian union the united more united that goes from peace pushing through to peons to understand that we we have to be together because the only way to be together means reacting to these threats is i think the trade threats of trump is a mortal threat for europe is a mortal threat because i have been a model of european economy is based on export it's based on producing more than we consumption and but these crucial for the future of european union if
9:31 am
we have a word of protectionist if we are obliged to produce only for the internal consumption that is the end of the european economic model this is why trade is becoming the big gap between european union and us subtropics also threatening to pull america out of the w t l if eriksson doesn't go there merican way what would that mean for here a plan for a condition i think for w. two it would be a mortal threat to. buy the same time i don't see possible to have a trade that multilateral level without an organization a multilateral organizations we can have only bilateral agreements between countries we need to have and then to new international multilateral organizations w two a was this organization it's worked in some period of our history even reason . history so i think trump attacked.
9:32 am
multilateralism and europe at the same time and i think it's a double of talk that is for us the big signal we have to react we were always allied of us and we are still alive of the us trump is another thing from these really is that for us so let's talk in more details in terms of what your pain reaction should be because like completely right now trump threatens to slap him for a tax on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese goods right and he then sat at that here opinion is almost as bad as china always smaller that's a quote. what do you make of it like what does this mean and do you feel like europe should be prepared for import taxes from washington as well i think reactions can be considered those who are in this tour but at the end of the name of their you know. tribes protectionism is affecting today more european union than
9:33 am
china. the decisions that try to continue now where the season's first against the prince the lies because the friends the allies like european you know or like canada or like mexico where countries without any damn petty any customs and the protection is with the us we were really in a very good relationships in terms of trade china already. has many many barriers with us so the decisions of trump are affecting today more european union canada mexico than china so this is why we are so angry with him and we this is why our reaction is in terms of counter reactions to the u.s. but also in terms of turning to east what i would think could hear
9:34 am
a pin in a slapping terrorists in retaliation to at hostile action is maybe a strong thing to do but that does not put an end to the trade war itself so is there anything else other than new trade taxes then you can deal and turning to the east we can hope. the democrats can defeat trump in the next election system that says no one hears that he would be elected the first time but at the end of the day . i think you know trump is doing what he said in the electoral campaign i'm not surprised by the direction he took the point is that the direction is a wrong one because is the direction say by saying american first and american industry first is to the most racial that we can start with with trade wars and trade was among western countries among w two countries among west and
9:35 am
east are the way to waste opportunities to do. destroyed jobs to destroy. the recovery in our part of the word this is why i think the retaliation reaction and the global trade. acts from all of you did european union this is why i mentioned. the eastern countries but i can mention also for instance mexico we have to. have a new deal with mexico because it's it's for the most russians that we want to be proactive and positive towards north america but we can't accept the sad truth of the case from so you have like you've said in the beginning of the interview that whatever is happening is a mortal threat to europe but i've also heard jinan in to say that trans hostile attitude towards europe is actually going to help you or grow up that's funny
9:36 am
because that's what we russians say and what the sanctions the sanctions will help them grow up but are you guys actually when i say you the europeans ready to defy america like serious issues for instance iran sanctions i think iran is is. is really next and acceptable what happened on iran so i think we have to think how to avoid the bad consequences of this huge and so on on iran. it depends on the next elections depends whether he would be reelected or not because one scenario is from a sort of parenthesis one to and then the sort of nightmare that can end up and we can start again with this. strong alliance and strong. working together between the u.s.
9:37 am
and europe if you're trying to. get sort of election in twenty. that is profoundly different and this is why i think the next months will be important to so for to follow these disabilities ok so let's talk a little bit about italy europe relations with russia because he replied russia have separate relations i mean they're much more tied historically and economically than fresh are in america because russia america's more strategic partnership more than anything else so. practically all the public school forces in italy that you know i have come across. they are for close cooperation with moscow i don't know any italian politician whether it's from conservative or democratic or the alternative parties that would say we need to make war with russia all of them are saying we need to cooperate with moscow that silly way but then when it comes to
9:38 am
lifting the sanctions the only thing italy can do is just you know the vote against the automatic extension of sanctions liasing rome can be. stronger and saying maybe we should get rid of the sanctions if we understand that this doesn't benefit italy politically or economically. italy's the country as you know with the best i think relationship with russia in terms in economic terms in political terms so it is clear it is not hidden not a need an agenda for italy to overcome this situation the same time we are within the european union and within europe union the. there is a mixed feeling and a very. why there and complex scenario on this topic i think it's necessary to work well together to try to overcome the situation is the
9:39 am
interests of europe of all if you will is the interest of italy i think that in today's interest of russia to choice necessary to work altogether to have an evolution you mentioned the us and europe it is clear that the different interests the different eastern interest is because geopolitics is forward by two words geography and follett ix. and for joe griffin you're open russia we are neighboring countries so we have to co-exist we have to work together we have to cooperate that is not the case for us so this is why the key point for us is that. the consideration of in the next future path away a road map on how to overcome sanctions is in our interest is in the interest
9:40 am
though for the european union but i think it is indeed interest of russia to this is why we. we we hope russia surely is trying to play the sanctions are helping us and that i can tell you but. i don't want to get your personal view on this what is this about like michael costa russia or chancellor merkel comes to russia and every time they speak out of russia it's all about bridging the gaps not about the gaps ok they talk about importance of being together and moving forward together and the men in their home facing their audiences it's all about you know super anti-rational rhetoric is this for the audiences is this for the voters of what is this thing goes once where in russia talking to put in we say one thing and as soon as we go back home we need to pursue the usual rhetoric or else we'll be seen as what because it is necessary to understand that this diplomatic situation means
9:41 am
a diplomatic it was a private and very wise approach meaning that we have maybe to separate we have to cooperate for many things and we have to freeze at the beach the problems that we are having without raising these problems as. as the friend say questions. cooperating in other research on other issues and knowing that the european union is composed by today twenty eight countries among these countries we have to respect the fact that some of them have a different approach than the one we having as italians and the fame a ses the demonstration of the fact that on foreign policy the european union has to. to make steps and to have more steps in terms of unification of the position and saying that maybe we need to have an institutional
9:42 am
framework to take decisions at majority without finding always the consensus that will change next year next year you will fragmentation probably it would be necessary to have the agreement among four groups to me to have a majority that means i completely different. decision making process at the repeal level i think next year in this very period we will see over the old good times of twenty and seventeen or twenty sixteen because the european parliament would be completely different and in this european parliament. the other main point would be. are the populous parties running together in a unique group in a unique front or are them divide it. because of course if they are
9:43 am
united and if they get no twenty twenty five thirty percent of the votes that change a lot of european life and this is why next year it will be a turning point of the european political life you mentioned migrations. you know migrations is the typical topic where the inter-governmental rule. doesn't work because if you have twenty eight head of state and government meeting around the table and the topic here is are many migrants you take how many migrants can give you it doesn't work because the answer would be always zero i want zero i as prime minister of my country upon one magnet's i want zero but if you have refugees coming you need to have a supreme national organisation the european commission taking the
9:44 am
responsibility to say these syrian refugees we need to welcome them and so we have to redistribute them within the member states and it is not. good will of one country saying that i can take one thousand i can take one hundred but it's it's a different way with the intergovernmental role it would be impossible to solve the migrant problems in the way it was looking right now i don't know what's going to be in ears to come right now your new government italy's new government doesn't want migrants in italy and is even threatening not to pay its share on the migration issue into the e.u. budget here but you know it's a contradiction this agreement between italy and hungary is a contradiction because italy is the country of first entry in the
9:45 am
european union and it is first entry because italy's the mediterranean country like greece so it is almost impossible to block any arrival because of the coastal jog a few feet or so the first need to futilely is to have solidarity of the rest of the european union when we have refugees or. arriving we need the other countries showing solidarity towards us and the less giving so little it is ordered and hungary hungary they don't want to have any migrants sure the big contradiction is that italy needs exactly the opposite italy needs a european situation in reach you know we had a crisis in fifteen thirteen that was a very difficult crisis but if you have five hundred thousand refugees arriving
9:46 am
and if you are a continent of five hundred million people if you spread all these migrants in all the continent you can at the end of the day welcome them you can leave with this problem but if you are welcome them only in one country italy or in one country germany the problem is absolutely and conceivable and unsolvable this is why only a european solution can give some some unsworth to produce migrant flows of course we have to control our works than a border are not for open doors of europe to all migrants it's not manageable but for refugees coming from wars that the west. you know euro afghanistan syria these three countries of origin are the countries
9:47 am
of half of the refugees during this crisis and these three countries where the big mistakes of the of the west of the u.s. first of all the us so it is necessary to give an answer that these are a unified from so what are the chances of really briefly because we're coming to an end of a man in the close proposed the reform to be implemented to come to life with so many obstacles on the way i mean you need the german backing you need chancellor merkel to back you she her position at home is weakened germans are very wary of anything pan-european because they hear that and they automatically think they need to pay for everything especially poor countries so she will have to back this reform back you and maybe we can her position at home this and then the germans also saying that for this reform to undergo all parliaments need to agree which is
9:48 am
an impossible thing to do what are the chances of this reform really come into effect how realistic is this and do you still believe that manning mccloy is the big unifier among men the news in the last piece you wrote a little there was one good news the good news was the agreement between france and germany on some reforms of the euro it will they have this agreement at the end of june before summer in mezzeh birth and i think italy has all the interest to issue poor to and to have the possibility to implement part of this agreement this agreement is an agreement on how to create a euro budget a euro budget needs for the sun to create an insurance against unemployment into italy needs social measures social measure measures to complete the arch director of the utopia. the utah is a financial its director with
9:49 am
a lack of the social people so easily needs and what i would like to see is my government pushing for reform in that direction not for less because we have the euro the euro is there so we have to complete the it should take two or so what germans and french agreed in measure burke was the first step that was interesting it is in our own interest as italians there are many difficulties and i'm not i'm not sure that all these reforms can be approved because of the differences and also because of the fact that the main problem in the next months will be breaks it if you ask me what is the biggest warry you have today it is not. all we talked about it is but it's because we are growing towards blacks it towards the cliff edge as we see the worst
9:50 am
a disaster there's no plan a. even no plan b. and there are even no plan c. there's just. approaching march the twenty ninth with the idea then the day after will be a disaster and this disaster we create a big financial instability and we will suffer a lot this is why i am really worried about what exit and this is why breaks it you have to have breaks it to. hold what i said about next year elections and the elections will be in may it will be end of march we will have i think i fear. very sat. spring and we were. told to think about the future to fuel up thinking that we have to overcome all these difficulties and next year would be a very complicated year hopefully overcome the difficulties all the blast a lot of tears thank you very much for this interview thank you very much.
