BRUSSELS -

Is the government willing to renegotiate partnership agreements on Cohesion funds?

"We will see about this.

We will evaluate the Pnrr together and, in a logical and coordinated way, also the part relating to Cohesion because we could imagine a single coordination for the Pnrr expires in June 2026, Cohesion in 2029 and the Development and Cohesion Fund, being national, it has no expiry. I believe that articulating these three funds in a coordinated way is the most logical situation we are working on".

This was stated by the Minister for EU Affairs, Cohesion and the Pnrr, Raffaele Fitto, speaking with reporters in Brussels.

"We will carry out a check with the Commission, and if it should emerge that it is impossible, and in some cases this is the case, to be able to carry out some projects by 2026,

we, together with the EU, will work to find a solution taking into account that the In the coming months Italy will present the RePowerEu for which it cannot use further resources without special authorizations The government will present a complete report that will give a picture of the current state also with proposals for change that will be addressed in agreement with the EU", explained FItto.

"There are no fears in the government. There is awareness of the situation on which we are working very serenely in collaboration with the European Commission.

After just over four months, the debate that has unleashed "on the Pnrr seems surreal to me. Moreover, it is a debate that was born a few months ago but which has never been in Italy, yet the Pnnr has been operating in Italy for much longer ".

This was stated by the Minister for EU Affairs, the Pnrr and Cohesion Raffele Fitto speaking with reporters at the EP.

" There is no concern, we are working proactively with the Commission, which yesterday also confirmed great progress in recent weeks. So we will work with the EU on a solution to the issues relating to the completion of the last installment and we will open a comparison" on the more comprehensive program, added Fitto.

On the objectives as of December 31st to obtain the 19 billion installment and on the extension of the Commission's decision "it is not a question of making polemics

but of acknowledging the fact that these are issues that obviously concern the previous government". added - in agreement with the mayors and with the Ministries of the Interior and of the Economy, it will prepare clarification answers" to the EU on the projects under examination, including that of the stadium in Florence and the sports forest in Venice, "hoping find a solution".

In terms of the Pnrr as a whole "we will make our spending forecasts. The date of June 2026 I understand, I'm not telling you, it remains that of June 2026

and this is the reason why those who took office a few months ago pose the problem of what will happen between now and June 2026. Some speak of irresponsibility, I think instead that there is great responsibility and a sense of respect for the institutions to avoid to imagine that issues that seem problematic today could erupt in a couple of years.

It is much more intelligent, constructive and useful for our country to identify critical issues and solutions today", explained Fitto. "Here it is a question of talking about the issues with a serious and responsible approach and this is what the Meloni government has been doing since the to think that everything can be thrown into controversy, I don't know what it's for", added the minister, underlining: "
