“Your appointment comes at a crucial time for Italy and the entire European Union,” said Tusk in a message to Conte.

“To overcome our common challenges, we need unity and solidarity more than ever. I strongly believe that our community will only flourish when based on respectful dialogue and loyal cooperation, which I will do my best to ensure,” he added.
