"With a center-right government, it is certain that Taiwan will be an essential concern for Italy," said Meloni, who says he "followed closely (and) with discomfort" what is happening in the Strait. The European Union should “deploy all the political and diplomatic weapons at its disposal", Exerting" as much pressure as possible "to prevent China from provoking any military conflict in the area, added Meloni, according to whom a Chinese military action would also have repercussions on trade relations between Beijing and Brussels:" Let's not forget that the The European Union is also a key outlet market for China, which risks being closed if it decides to attack the island ”.
