秋霞66手机版-Giuseppe Conte was sworn in as Italy’s prime minister for the second time a few weeks ago. Now he heads up a very different coalition than the one he led last year. In 2018, Conte was prime minister in a government composed of Matteo Salvini’s populist, pro-Russian, anti-European Union, anti-immigrant League party and Luigi Di Maio’s big-spending Five Star Movement. This new government consists of the Five Star Movement and the center-left Democratic Party and is considered pro-E.U. Conte, a former academic, is not a member of a political party. Conte took time out from meetings at the recent United Nations General Assembly to explain to The Washington Post’s Lally Weymouth why he admires President Trump, why he changed coalition partners and what he plans to do for his country now. Edited excerpts follow:

99re久久热最新地址一-Q: You and President Trump have a good relationship that started at the G-7 meeting in June 2018.

  • 偷偷要费观看视频在 线-A: It was our first meeting. There was from the beginning a personal sympathy and a very frank dialogue.

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: President Trump said that Russia should join the G-7, and you agreed?

                    99re久久热最新地址一-A: That’s true. I supported this initiative because it seemed to me that if Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, could sit around the table with us, we would have a greater chance to solve the most important geopolitical crises all over the world.

                    秋霞66手机版-Q: In August, just before it was announced that you would become prime minister of a new coalition, Trump tweeted that it was “starting to look good for the highly respected Prime Minister of the Italian Republic, Giuseppe Conte, who works well with the USA. A very talented man who will hopefully remain Prime Minister!”

                  • 99re久久热最新地址一-A: It was very nice of him.

                    99re久久热最新地址一-Q: On the other hand, you previously led a coalition government with [former deputy prime minister and interior minister] Matteo Salvini, the populist leader of the League, and with Luigi Di Maio, leader of the Five Star Movement. Now you are the prime minister of a government that stands for something quite different.

                    99re久久热最新地址一-A: Yes, the League is gone. The current coalition consists of the Democratic Party and the Five Star Movement.

                    秋霞66手机版-Q: Why did you decide to change coalition partners?

                    超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-A: During the last months of the last government, it was very clear that something was going wrong.

                    99re久久热最新地址一-Q: What was it?

                    秋霞66手机版-A: It was impossible to go on if somebody was working for himself or for his party and not for the common interest.

                    偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: So Matteo Salvini was working for himself and for the League?

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: Yes, not for the common interest.

                    99re久久热最新地址一-Q: How did you come to that conclusion?

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: They [the League] asked the Parliament for a vote of no confidence.

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: Expecting to win?

                    超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-A: Of course. I decided to go before the Parliament because of my own convictions. I explained to Salvini that we should both go before the Parliament to explain what had happened both to the parliamentarians and to the Italian citizens. I gave my speech. Then there were to be speeches by Salvini and others. But Salvini and the League withdrew their motion.

                    偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: So then what happened?

                  • 秋霞66手机版-A: I said I am going to retire. The game is over. I went directly to the president of the Italian republic [Sergio Mattarella] to give him my resignation.

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: And then?

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: Then, of course, the government dissolved. The president under these circumstances can decide to dissolve the Parliament, but only as a last step. Before he does so, he is obliged to check if there is any alternate majority. Thus, the president invited all of the representatives of the different political parties in order to check if was possible to find an alternate majority. There were a few weeks of negotiations and consultations. Then step by step, they identified me as the new prime minister of a new coalition.

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: Did you have any encouragement from foreign countries like the U.S. or others?

                    秋霞66手机版-A: Not directly.

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: Trump didn’t say to you that it would be a great idea to stay on?

                    超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-A: During this period, there was a G-7 meeting in Biarritz, France. I received many encouraging words from the other leaders who were present. But nobody interfered in our political Italian life.

                    超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Q: But foreign leaders did encourage you?

                  • 2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: They were very kind to me. Most of them appreciated my speech in the Senate.

                    超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Q: What about the rumors that have been floating about for some time regarding Salvini’s connections to Russia and the reported kickbacks that his League party received?

                    秋霞66手机版-A: The political party that was our opposition asked me and Salvini to go to the Parliament to discuss the so-called “Russiagate.” Salvini avoided going to the Parliament, but I as prime minister went because I felt obliged to be transparent. On that occasion, I clarified all the information that I had obtained. Salvini never clarified his position.

                    秋霞66手机版-Q: How is the immigration situation in Italy right now? Has the flow of migrants increased lately, as it has in Greece?

                    偷偷要费观看视频在 线-A: In our country, the number of migrants is not increasing.

                    秋霞66手机版-Q: Your migrants are coming from Libya, isn’t that so?

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: They are coming from and through Libya, but also from Tunisia.

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: Do you have a problem with France backing Gen. Khalifa Hifter [commander of the Libyan National Army] in Libya while Italy supports the Government of National Accord, the U.N.-backed government in Tripoli? Why are Italy and France backing different factions?

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: In Libya, there is a military option being promoted by Hifter. On the contrary side, there is [Prime Minister] Fayez Sarraj, who is the legitimate president.

                    偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: Your goal in Libya is . . . ?

                    2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: To have a political solution.

                    偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: I heard that you have persuaded a group of European countries to discuss the possibility of taking some of the refugees that will arrive in your country. Has that deal been concluded, or is it still under discussion?

                    99re久久热最新地址一-A: Until now, refugees who arrive in Italy stay in Italy. Italy has been left alone.

                    秋霞66手机版-Q: The Dublin Regulation established that the E.U. member states which were a migrant’s first port of entry were responsible for processing them, right?

                    秋霞66手机版-A: As a member of the European Union, in order to manage the inflows [of refugees], we have to find a European mechanism to redistribute them and return them to their country of origin and to share the burden.

                    偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: Won’t the other E.U. countries say that the Dublin Regulation requires that Italy and Greece keep the migrants, as they are usually the first port of entry?

                    秋霞66手机版-A: We have to avoid a mechanism that will be an incentive for migrants to come to the Italian coast and then go on to Germany and France. We are against illegal immigration, and we will fight against the traffickers and the smugglers, who actually pose a danger to the migrants.

                    偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: Have you persuaded France and other countries to take some of the burden of the refugees?

                    秋霞66手机版-A: We found a solution now.

                  • 超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Q: What is the solution?

                                                                                    99re久久热最新地址一-A: A provisory mechanism. Now we have a few countries that I’ve convinced to adopt this, but we are offering it to other countries in the European Union in order to have additional participants.

                                                                                    秋霞66手机版-Q: What is the provision that you’ve adopted?

                                                                                  1. 偷偷要费观看视频在 线-A: The provision is that we have to identify a safe place in order to allow the migrants to arrive in a harbor. This safe place could be not only in Italy.

                                                                                    99re久久热最新地址一-Q: Who else has accepted?

                                                                                    秋霞66手机版-A: We are talking to France, Spain and Greece — all countries that are members of the [European] Union.

                                                                                      超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Q: France said yes? Spain said yes?

                                                                                      超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-A: They are working on it.

                                                                                    1. 超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Q: They’re working on it, or they said yes?

                                                                                      2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: We are trying to convince them. It is not formalized, so I have to be very careful. But they are very open now — Germany and France.

                                                                                    2. 2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: How did you do that?

                                                                                      2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-A: We pushed a lot. We worked a lot on that.

                                                                                      2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Q: But offering to take a large number of refugees was essentially the end of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s political career.

                                                                                      超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-A: We are not saying come to Italy. We will maintain a strong position against illegal immigration — we cannot accept that everybody comes into our territory. When refugees arrive, we are going to redistribute them.

                                                                                      超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Q: So you will redistribute them from Italy?

                                                                                      偷偷要费观看视频在 线-A: Or if they arrive in Malta or in other places of safety.

                                                                                              99re久久热最新地址一-Q: That’s surprising because the Europeans have been so resistant to taking in refugees.

                                                                                              秋霞66手机版-A: It’s a very significant step forward. Now we are working hard to [create] a system of returns because just a few of the migrants have the right to international protection. The rest will be returned to their country of origin. We are working for a European mechanism to manage the return system.

                                                                                              偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: How do you see your government’s relationship with the E.U.? Salvini was, of course, notoriously anti-E.U.

                                                                                              超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-A: This government wants to have a constructive dialogue with the European Union.

                                                                                              偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Q: You said before we sat down that you planned to say something positive about President Trump’s speech to the United Nations in support of religious freedom.

                                                                                              99re久久热最新地址一-A: I will mention the initiative on religious freedom.

                                                                                            • 超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Q: So you’re going to say that you support Trump?

                                                                                              99re久久热最新地址一-A: It’s a good initiative. Aren’t you in favor of religious freedom?

                                                                                              2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-Twitter: @LallyWeymouth
