“We are in a dangerous phase,” Monti said on the sidelines
of the Ambrosetti Forum on Lake Como after meeting with EU Council
President Herman van Rompuy. He said a divisive populism is present in

moment when the impetus is for greater integration to help safeguard the
euro currency and restore health to the EU’s economy.

“It is
paradoxical and sad that in a phase in which one was hoping to complete
the integration instead there is forming a dangerous counter-phenomenon
that aims at the disintegration,” Monti said, according to the LaPresse
news agency.

The premier offered Rome as a venue for a summit confronting the tendency. Van Rompuy said he supported the proposal.
