Middle East, Tajani’s challenge: “Italy ready to intervene in Gaza”

Italy “is ready to possibly participate in a peace mission to guarantee a transitional phase” in the Gaza Strip towards the creation of a Palestinian State. Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said this at the end of the EU Council in Brussels.

The proposal to establish a naval mission to protect shipping between the Strait of Hormuz and the Suez Canal has received “a lot of support from many EU states” and High Representative Josep Borrell is “absolutely in favor”. Foreign Affairs Minister Antonio Tajani added at the end of the EU Council in Brussels. «I raised the issue together with France and we had a lot of support from many European Union states and also from Borrell who presented an initial proposal, said he was absolutely in favor and committed to ensuring that Italy’s proposal can be approved as quickly as possible. .” This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Antonio Tajani, at the end of the Foreign Affairs Council on the green light for the European mission in the Red Sea. «Now there are technical commissions that will have to study the applications, skills and therefore all the technical aspects, the rules of engagement that are important. But it will certainly be a defensive maneuver. If there is an attack, the ships will be defended. So it seems to me that we are going in the right direction”, he added. «Borrell assured that we will try to do it as quickly as possible, which makes us satisfied and that’s why I would say that the meeting went positively», highlighted the person in charge of Farnesina.
