The Italian Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte has hit out at other European countries for keeping their borders closed as Italy has reopened theirs.
Conte said, “There are some countries that think it’s appropriate to adopt measures against countries that currently have a higher contagion curve, there is no reason for Austria or Greece to take discriminatory measures against Italy.”
France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Greece have excluded Italy from bilateral free trade agreements.
International flights to Rome, Naples and Milan have resumed flights and the Italian government have dropped the 14-day quarantine for all new travellers.
Italian Foreign Minister has warned that the EU is on the brink of “collapse” if the bloc does not sort the coronavirus pandemic together.
Brussel’s handling over the pandemic across the EU has been constantly criticised the last few months, which has sparked fury with Italy as they claim they have received little help.
Italy’s Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio warned the “EU spirit could be lost,” as Europe slowly start to reopen borders, but could not allow visitors from high Covid countries.
