The foreign minister has said "the whole of Europe should be grateful” to Matteo Salvini, former interior minister of Italy, for “saving his homeland and saving Europe.”
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, noted on Facebook that Salvini was facing trial for blocking a ship of illegal migrants off the coasts of Italy in 2019. He added that Salvini had tried to “prevent the violation of European borders and the trampling on European laws”. “Grazie Matteo!” he added.
