Di Maio’s warning to Berlusconi: “Salvini is screwing you”
“I am the only leader who has never heard from Berlusconi in his life, ever. And now I almost regret it. I would like to make a phone call to tell him: “Silvio, but do you know that Salvini on the Quirinale is cheating you?”. I would also say that to Meloni. In politics we can not get along. But Salvini is a pathological liar ». Thus Luigi Di Maio, Minister of Foreign Affairs, in a preview of the interview published in the new issue of the weekly The Post Internazionale – Tpi, on newsstands from Friday 29 October.
