(ANSA) - MESSINA, 18 JUN - "Either we end it in Europe with unanimous approvals or we will always be destined to be the servants of others: how can we have unanimity on all the more complex issues? It was already difficult in six, with 27 countries it is inconceivable ". This was stated by Romano Prodi, president of the Foundation 'For collaboration between peoples' and former president of the European Union, participating in connection with the second forum on the future of Europe "The metamorphosis of Europe", a meeting organized by "Taobuk", in progress in Taormina, at the University of Messina.
The debate centers on "Winners and Losers of the Pandemic Great War: Europe at the Crossroads of Hamilton and Murphy's Law". Prodi believes that "this is the big problem: we will never be able to make a common foreign policy and to confront Russia and other large countries because the problem of command in politics is crucial. Today I can speak with this brutality because I am the grandfather of Europe. With unanimity we cannot have a foreign and economic policy and we cannot solve the big problems such as immigration. We are among the great players in the world economy but we will not count for much until we have a common line of command ".
"Better a Europe with more speeds than with the engine off - concluded Prodi - If any country can't stay there, it can't. If you have to deal with concrete things, you must have a stronger position". (HANDLE).
