Brenner: Vienna, Rome should return to the negotiating table

Minister Gewessler will meet her counterpart Salvini tomorrow

27 February, 14:00
(ANSA) - BOLZANO, FEB 27 - Regarding trucks at the Brenner Pass, "a constructive atmosphere is necessary. It is time also for Italy to present the solutions and proposals that until now have always been only announced." Austrian Transport Minister Leonore Gewessler said in an interview with the Tiroler Tageszeitung ahead of a meeting with her Italian counterpart Matteo Salvini scheduled for tomorrow. "My position - the minister added - is very clear: I stand with the Tyroleans who suffer enormously from the transit (of transalpine heavy vehicles, ed.). The protection of health and quality of life is at stake." According to Gewessler, the restrictions on trucks in Tyrol exist "not out of a whim, but because the situation has become unbearable." The infringement proceeding before the Court of Justice of the European Union against Austria that Salvini announced does not worry the government in Vienna. (ANSA).
