Berlusconi: The cold war actually ended in 2002, in Italy

26
Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who does not give up political ambitions, today announced that he was depressed by the state of affairs with international security. According to the Italian politician, he believed that the world had left forever the Cold War, but the current situation suggests otherwise. At the same time, Berlusconi calls himself "one of the architects of the world after the end of the Cold War."


According to the ex-premier of Italy, the Cold War did not really end in 1990, but 2002. Italian media quoted Silvio Berlusconi as saying:
When I worked in the government - in 2001 - I then said publicly that I was going to put an end to the Cold War. It lasted about half a century and was in fact terrible. And I got my way. I managed to put an end to the Cold War, because here in Rome, in Pratica di Mare in 2002, I persuaded George Bush (Jr.) and Vladimir Putin to end the confrontation. I used all the opportunities I had at that time.


Berlusconi: The cold war actually ended in 2002, in Italy


From Vladimir Putin’s statement in Italy on 2002, at the very meeting Berlusconi is talking about:
I heartily thank our Italian friends and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for the hospitality and the excellent organization of the meeting.

I can imagine how difficult it was in such a short time to do what was done. The value of this meeting is difficult to overestimate. More recently, a similar meeting of the leaders of Russia and NATO member countries, given its current format and considering its quality, would be simply unthinkable. These days it has become a reality. This is a reality that has become possible thanks to intense joint work and readiness for an interested and absolutely open dialogue.

We adopted a Declaration, which clearly defined the principles of interaction, established a mechanism in the form of a new Russia-NATO Council, and have already formulated the initial areas of joint efforts. And therefore we firmly hope that the Roman document is not a statement of intent, but a solid basis for joint constructive work.

In conclusion, I would like to note once again: the new reality of our relations is a direct reflection of the new level and quality of mutual understanding. I believe that the efforts we have jointly spent in favor of peace will continue. We have no alternative to this.


Sociologists in Italy believe that in the upcoming elections (4 in March), the conservative alliance of Silvio Berlusconi "Forza Italia" and the League of the North will take first place. NATO has already announced that this could "lead to the rapprochement of Italy with Russia."

    There is not a single document that speaks of the conclusion of peace following the results of the Cold War. So the cold war continues. We can talk about the end of the Cold War with the same success as we can talk about an agreement on NATO’s non-eastward movement: since there is no document, then ... what claims?

      He’s probably a storyteller worse than Gianni Rodari will be. It would be better to talk about Chippolino. laughing

        And what does he, the owner of the cinema and brothels, face? Another prison? In my opinion, he will be fine everywhere.

          I do not argue for brothels - I drank wine in Rome with almost an exact copy of Sofochka Loren.

          I remember - startled ..... repeat It’s good that my wife doesn’t read what I’m writing here, but I think that if there was a real Sofochka, she would understand and forgive me .... repeat The wine was great! .... repeat Once upon a time, 45 years ago ..... Specialist angry , thank God, I did not smell it ... And then my epaulettes and business trips to four continents would have covered with a copper basin ....
          And the Italian cinema died 40 years ago. At least, to me, a fan of cinema in general in general, who knows all the film classics by name, not a single il regista of at least 80-x comes to mind, not to mention 90-2000-xx ... Who knows - tell me, download, I'll see ...

    In World War II, Italians were meat for the Fritz; in the Cold War, absolutely no one. how NO ONE maybe a winner in some ways? Caesar's laurel wreath does not give rest?
    Moreover, the Cold War did not end. Hitler stamped the medals "For the Capture of Moscow", America also decided that the war was over ...
    Nude ....
    The war will be. Hot. America cannot survive without it. She survived twice on Russian bones - she hopes for the third time.
    Why am I talking about America? After all, the article is about Italy ... And to the fact that Italy is like with 75 AD she didn’t decide anything, and now she means even less.
    He himself does not understand what he is haha? .......

        That's right, Alexander. Only a person with an abnormal perception of reality (I would say in short, but the admins will again be banned) will NEVER prove that he is EXACTLY like that. You tell him that it’s not his fault, you start to say something about small bugs (chromosomes) that somehow somehow didn’t mate well ..... And he looks at you with clean eyes and says that you yourself such.....
        Tired of the West already proving where they are about ... bali ... We wait, sir, when the Strategic Missile Forces will say its word. For my part, as a simple Russian pensioner, I can offer myself to the Motherland as a regiment commander, battalion, or any other tactical unit. There’s nothing to surprise me. .
        The only thing - if only the wife did not know. Tired of 20 with over calendars and one and a half times more length of service. ..

    Berlusconi is definitely not the worst option for Italy, but for the EU, NATO and the USA - like a bone in the throat. As for his statement about his contribution to the end of the Cold War, I would like to think that this is not a smart self-PR, designed for an electorate that does not particularly follow the history, and not senile senility. He would have attributed himself a personal contribution to the end of WWII, but it’s a pity that he was a little young then lol
