(ANSA) - ROME, MARCH 20 - The new Stability Pact must guarantee the flexibility of European funds, and an agreement will have to be found on this.

While the opposition and Brussels are pressing for Italy to ratify the Mes, Giorgia Meloni considers this passage crucial and will reiterate it at the European Council on Thursday and Friday, in view of which she will hold communications to the Chambers tomorrow and Wednesday.

    The Mes is not the center of the discussions, it is the line of the premier, who met the Minister of the Interior Matteo Piantedosi to prepare for the appointment in Brussels this morning: the migrant dossier, with all its implications, was on the table.

A cordial confrontation, in which "renewed harmony and trust" emerged, according to sources close to Meloni.

For the government, on the one hand, it is a priority to help Tunisia, which awaits funding from the IMF, on the verge of a crisis which, the executive fears, could generate a wave of migrants.

On the other hand, as the Prime Minister will reiterate, we need finally a European management of migratory flows, in border control, in cooperation on repatriations and in the fight against smugglers.

    In the afternoon, the premier had a half-hour phone call with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

After the latest Russian moves, with the visit of Vladimir Putin to Mariupol, and that of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Moscow, the shared hope - it is explained - is that the EU Council will give a new strong signal of support for Ukraine.
