Count, the understanding with China is online with the interests of Italy, its exports and its ports

Our commercial ports of call - it has emphasized the Prime Minister - will not be bypassati by the new traffics

The memorandum of understanding on the New Via of the Silk that the Italian government will agree with that Chinese is online with the national interests of Italy, its exports and its harbour ports of call. It has emphasized today to the Chamber of Deputies Giuseppe Conte, Prime Minister of ministers, taking part in classroom in sight of the European Council in program next thursdays and fridays, with the dinner of job of the first day that will exactly regard the relationships between the European Union and China in forecast of the EU-China summit in program in order on 9 April.

Remembering that the summit European Union - China to Brussels will happen little more than two weeks from the conclusion of the visit of State of president Xi Jinping in Italy, Count has anticipated that to it accredits European thursdays will restate "the full coincidence between the Italian vision of the relationship with China and the strategy continuation from the European Union that - has specified - even it will be strengthened by the Italian approach".

The Italian prime Minister has specified that the memorandum that the government will sign with Beijing on the initiative Belt and Road "is not an international agreement, does not create legal constraints; if own we wanted to define it, if you had to define from a technical point of view - it has clarified - I would define, more correctly, a programmatica understanding that, I restate, also not giving rise to binding engagements legally, delineates objectives, principles, modality of collaboration in the within of the initiative Belt and Road that, as you know, it is a great project of euroasiatica infrastructural connectivity that, until from its launch, in 2013, has attracted the interest of Italy".

"Our economic-commercial attention regarding this infrastructure and of China - it has continued Count addressing to the assembly of Palazzo Montecitorio - is totally legitimate and is justified just to light of our national interests. For this way - it has emphasized the Prime Minister - we will be able to upgrade ours export towards a market of enormous dimensions; our enterprises will have the chance of being directly participant of the realization of new and important infrastructural investments, our peninsula, mainly our ports, our commercial ports of call, will not be bypassati by the new traffics, but they will be able also to enjoy, rightfully, of the economic advantages and to value their geographic position of natural terminals of this new Via of the silk".

"Attention - it has still evidenced Count - the perimeter of the memorandum of understanding on the Belt and Road is exquisitely economic-commercial, minimally does not put in argument our euro-Atlantic positioning. Its content, negotiates for long months with Beijing, involving all the interested administrations, does not anticipate some risk for our national interests and is totally online with the strategy of the European Union, promuovendola, indeed, as no Country member it has made up to now in its dialogue with Beijing. The memorandum, in fact, tax with extreme clarity the collaboration on the Belt and Road, in connection with the principles of Agenda 2030, the Agenda 2020 of cooperation European-China Union and the strategy of the European Union for euroasiatica connectivity, that they are bench marks of the approach of the European Union towards China. It, the memorandum, promotes, moreover, with force the principles shared in European within of mutual advantage, reciprocity, transparency, sustainability, protection of the intellectual property, until creating a real one level playing field. I can claim, to good title, than our approach to the Belt and Road it is between farthest-sighted and effective that never is applied in European within".

"There is another aspect that you invitation to consider - it has continued Count - other Member States, also not having stipulated analogous understandings with Beijing, already collaborates, very more than we, on this initiative. Italy has chosen a transparent approach, formalizing the collaboration with China in a frame very defined, and, for this way, it has favorite to esplicitare with clarity the fundamental pillars of European matrix from which lasciamo inspiring to us. Regarding signed memoranda of understanding from other Countries, outside and within the European Union, ours it establishes a connection very more explicit with the lines and the norms of the European Union, and promotes with more force the values and the interests of Italy".
