– Our countries are experiencing a moment of special difficulties, a critical situation. We want to show that by respecting the rules and steps of prevention, life, including political life, can be continued – Conte said at a press conference.
The Italian Prime Minister added: – We continue our tasks and are the first to respect the rules.
Conte said he agreed with the Spanish Prime Minister that an “immediate and effective” EU response to the pandemic crisis was needed, both in the medical and economic fields.
– It is a moral obligation to all those who died of COVID-19, as a tribute and as a sign of their memory and European generations. Only a European response can trigger a recovery from an unprecedented crisis. National and nationalist recipes are not able to guarantee solutions, said the Italian Prime Minister.
– We reiterated – he announced – our wish that the Next generation Eu (package) be launched on January 1, 2021, without delay. Our citizens cannot wait – emphasized Conte.
Sanchez said that Spain and Italy “are stronger together and make Europe stronger”.
– Without the contribution of Italy and Spain to the European response to the crisis, the Rescue Fund would not have materialized – assessed the head of government in Madrid.
