He also advocated against the country's participation in a possible international military operation in Libya and criticized the official policy of Rome.
"I strongly oppose the bombing. As for our intervention, it seems to me that the Italian government has been changing its position almost every day. First it defends its right for leading the military operation […]. The next day, it categorically excludes the mission of our troops, and a day later it says that the time is running out," the politician said in an interview with Italian newspaper il Messaggero.
The participation of Italian troops in a possible international military operation in Libya has caused heated debate in the country. The country's leaders, including Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, have repeatedly stated that such operation is not yet on the agenda.
However, a week ago the Milan newspaper Corriere della Sera reported that in February the Prime Minister already signed a secret decree authorizing the deployment of 50 Italian servicemen in Libya, information which many Italians perceived as the country's preparation for a new war overseas.
According to the newspaper, the mission will be coordinated by the Italian government and Italian secret service AISE.
