His apology followed a radio interview on Wednesday in which he appeared to offer a positive slant on Mussolini’s dictatorship.

“I’m not a fascist, I was never a fascist, and I don’t share his political convictions,” Mr. Tajani told Radio 24, an Italian broadcaster. “But we have to be honest: Mussolini built roads, bridges, buildings, sports facilities; he has developed many parts of our Italy.”

Antonio Tajani: „Der Europäischen Union droht der Todesstoß“

„Nach dem Vorbild der Vereinbarung mit der Türkei, durch die die Balkanroute geschlossen werden konnte, muss die EU mindestens sechs Milliarden Euro investieren, um die Mittelmeerroute zu schließen“, schreibt Tajani in einem Gastbeitrag für die Zeitung Die Welt. Außerdem müssten die Europäer enger mit Transitländern wie Marokko, Tunesien und Algerien zusammenarbeiten.
