FEDRIGA AND BORDER CLOSURE

15/03/2020

We had some concerns about the somewhat brutal closure of the borders by Slovenia and Croatia. In this regard, we report a statement by the President of the Region Massimiliano Fedriga. 

"Taking unilateral and divisive initiatives, especially in the presence of a pandemic with heavy economic and employment consequences, seems irresponsible and unfair to an entire country, Italy, but also to a region such as Friuli Venezia Giulia, which have always cultivated a loyal and fully cooperative relationship with the Balkans.  The governor of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Massimiliano Fedriga, who today sent a letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Luigi Di Maio, in which he pointed out "the absolute need to represent the states of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Serbia in reviewing their positions on the closure of their borders". "It is, therefore, unreasonable to agree that we should have sporadic, uncoordinated and, above all, uncoordinated initiatives. shared between states. Such action has as its only outcome - continues the governor - to restrict the transit of goods and to slow down the indispensable supplies to companies of all kinds. nationality, necessary to cope with the imminent emergency". "I am aware of the initiatives already taken by Minister Di Maio, but I am sure - concludes Fedriga - that there will be a decisive intervention on the issue".
