Meloni says coherent on foreign affairs, won't take lessons

Don't need make-up, plaster won't hide your contradictions

(ANSA) - ROME, AUG 10 - Hard right Brothers of Italy (FdI) leader Giorgia Meloni said Wednesday the FdI's pro-NATO and pro-EU stance was coherent and she would not take lessons from centre-left Democratic Party (PD) leader Enrico Letta who earlier accused her of trying to 'put on powder' in an allegedly cosmetic change from her post-Fascist roots.
    She also slammed Letta's electoral deal with post-Communists.
    Meloni, who is tipped to become Italy's first woman and first post--Fascist premier after the September 25 general election, said on Facebook: "Brothers of Italy's position on foreign policy is coherent and extremely clear, and has as its lodestar the defence of the Italian national interest.
    "And we don't accept lessons from those who set themselves up as paladins of pro-NATO policy, but then make pacts with the radical Left nostalgic for the USSR.
    This referred to an electoral pact Letta sealed with the Italian Left (SI), a post-Communist party.
    "We don't need powder for our make-up, while you would not even be able to cover up your contradictions with plaster".
    The PD itself includes former Communists and former leftwing Christian Democrats. (ANSA).
