FM Tajani reaffirms Italy’s rejection of coup actions in Brazil

Rome, Jan 11 (Prensa Latina) Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani on Wednesday reaffirmed the condemnation by his country's government to the recent vandalistic and anti-democratic actions by coup groups in Brazil.

In an interview granted to Radio Capital station this Wednesday, Tajani expressed, “we are monitoring the situation with great concern; we have condemned what happened,”and he showed “solidarity with the Brazilian institutions and democracy.”

“We hope that the violent and anti-democratic phenomena are over. One can protest in a democratic way, but attacking the buildings of those institutions is unacceptable,” the minister added.

Tajani said that former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has not asked for Italian citizenship, as some sources claim. He acknowledged that “other family members have requested it on the basis of ius sanguinis” without revealing the identities of the latter.

On January 9, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni spoke out against the events that occurred in Brasilia on Sunday, when hundreds of Bolsonaro’s supporters attacked the seat of the Brazilian Executive, the premises of the Supreme Court, and the National Congress.
