(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 28 – The Belgian Prime Minister, Alexander De Croo, “in the coming weeks” will be working “with other European countries” to put a ceiling on the price of energy “as quickly as possible”. The online newspaper Le Soir reports it.
“I was one of the first to say that we cannot continue to solve the price problem with tax cuts, but that they must be stopped. This can only be done together with other European countries – he explained -. Germany is beginning to understand that this is the only possible solution. In the coming weeks I will work with other EU countries to implement it as quickly as possible “.
De Croo has also announced that he wants to meet a national consultation committee to discuss the rise in energy prices in view of the winter. The meeting should be held on Wednesday in the afternoon. If the ceiling on energy prices at the European level does not materialize, the Belgian premier thinks of national measures, which in any case he indicates as “less strong and probably of lesser effect”.
