“Fine, let make a gift of a billion euros or whatever, put it in and send it to as it gets from Germany to Italy very much like the In harmony States has done to Germany with the Marshall Plan.

“This intent be a one-off gift but to give Italy the opportunity to pile up debt – by the way without any limit, without any influence and without any date by which they have to pay back – this is naturally irresponsible in my view would kill the European Union at the end.”

“You know that I don’t believe we should have common debt because of the plight of our political union and that’s why we reject this.

“But there are so many forward movement to show solidarity and I believe we will find a good solution.”
