A fool that of Luigi Di Maio which will pay dearly for the whole country. The Al Minhad base, the logistical hub that for almost twenty years had guaranteed the transfer of military assets destined for missions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, is officially closed. Guilt – remember The newspaper – the anti-Emirati embargo decreed by the former premier Giuseppe Conte in agreement with the Foreign Minister. A huge loss that prompted the honorable member Mattia Perego, representative of Forza Italia in the Defense Committee, to contact directly to Mario Draghi: “President Draghi should take the helm of our country’s foreign policy, with his authority and leadership, to prevent such gross errors from happening again”.
But that of Al Minhad is not the only base to have closed its doors. In the meantime, in fact, the bases of Herat and Kabul, the main routes for most of the Italian flights in transit from Al Minhad, have also been closed. The wicked decision, however, has very important consequences, all the result of those that The newspaper calls “the legacy of the unfortunate 5-star policies of Conte and Di Maio who – prone to the orientation of the pro-Turkish lobbies – decided in January to freeze the licenses (already regularly granted) for the export of about 20 thousand aircraft bombs to the Emirates “. Obviously, relations with Abu Dhabi end up at risk the newspaper quantifies in four billion. So much to define that of Di Maio “a diplomatic incident“.
The situation could straighten out if we got rid of the subjugation to Turkey on the Libyan scenario where the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan represents the main enemy of the Emirates sided with the general Khalifa Haftar.
