The President of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities Noemi Di Segni congratulated the new Italian President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani, stressing the high significance of his election for Italy.
“The awarding of the leading role of the European Parliament to Italy is a reason for great pride and satisfaction for the whole country.  It is a role of great responsibility and leadership in a not-so easy moment for our continent, awaited by many challenges, both internal and influenced by the international geopolitical landscape,” Di Segni said in a message, also remembering how 2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome.
“To MEP Antonio Tajani go the appreciation and the friendship of Italian Jews, hoping for an increasingly closer cooperation,” she concluded.
In an interview published in the December issue of Pagine Ebraiche, Tajani called the fight against anti-Semitism and intolerance “one of the issues that I have most at heart.”
