BRUSSELS, 09 FEB – Emmanuel Macron’s invitation to Volodymyr Zelensky in Paris “was inopportune”. Our strength “must be unity”. Giorgia Meloni said it when she arrived at the European Council. The French president replied “I have no comments to make”, adding that “I wanted to receive President Zelensky with Chancellor Scholz, I think we were in our role”. In fact, “Germany and France, as you know, have had a particular role for eight years on the issue” of Ukraine, “because – he added – we have also conducted this process together, I think it is also up to Zelensky to choose the format he wants” for the diplomatic talks. “Italy is fully committed, our contribution is 360 degrees and we are aware that the Ukrainian conflict involves us all”, Meloni said again. “I believe that the best way to build an option for dialogue and peace is to keep the forces in the field balanced”, she added.
