The Salvini scandal – a trap?

The Salvini scandal – a trap?


If EU ministers negotiate politically explosively behind closed doors, it can also become loud. Officially, the lecture usually consists of "honest words" and an "open exchange of views". Sometimes journalists from diplomats get extra information.

But the fact that a minister secretly makes a video of a confidential meeting and is promptly published to expose a colleague, has so far been considered unthinkable.

Because now there is the Italian left bank, Matteo Salvini, among the EU Ministers for Home Affairs. He posted the video on Facebook and Twitter on Friday evening of a verbal battle with the Luxembourg minister of foreign affairs, Jean Asselborn. It shows how Asselborn – who is also responsible for immigration and asylum – reacted angrily to Salvini's remarks about migration and sharply reprimanded his Italian colleague.
