Italy hopes other EU nations will reopen their borders to Italians on June 15, Reuters reported referring to FM Luigi Di Maio.
Italy - which is the fourth country in the world in the number of COVID-19 deaths - reopened its borders to EU citizens on June 3, but most European countries are in no hurry to receive Italian citizens.
“June 15 is an important date for many of our citizens,” Di Maio told a news conference during his visit to Slovenia.
According to him, Germany and Switzerland have already reported that they can reopen borders for Italians by this time.
In turn, Slovenian FM Anze Logar noted: “Health conditions in Italy are improving fast ... I’m looking optimistically towards June 15.”
Nearly 234,500 COVID-19 cases were reported in Italy, with the death toll of 33,770. In the meantime, Slovenia has confirmed 1,479 cases and 109 people died there.
