Re-elected Spanish Prime Minister
Pedro Sanchez said Tuesday that Madrid has "utmost institutional
respect" for Italian Premier Giorgia Meloni.
Meloni, the leader of the right-wing Brothers of Italy (FDI) party, has expressed support for Spanish opposition, right-wing group Vox and took part via video link in one of its election rallies in July.
"It is true that Giorgia Meloni took part in the election campaign and she has supported Vox on several occasions, as it is her right to do," Sanchez said during an informal chat with the international press.
"But, with the election campaign over, while maintaining our ideological differences, we'll work to have improved relations with the Italian government on the many issues we have in common, from European funds to the challenge of migration".
