The European Union should take into consideration significant results of the right-wing parties in this weekend’s EU elections and try to facilitate “inclusive dialogue” with them, Italian ambassador to Russia Pasquale Terracciano said Monday.
“We have to consider that the right-wing movement increased their consensus, their share of votes. I believe that would be in the interest of the European Union to facilitate a broader dialogue, an inclusive dialogue taking into account different instances that will be put forward by those movements. There is a clear political interest,” Terracciano told press conference.
The Italian diplomat suggested that the two major parties that used to be “in a way sharing power within European institutions” would now need backing of other groups.
