MADRID, 11 (EUROPA PRESS)
The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has expressed his condolences for the death of the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, and has highlighted the work that the socialist has done during the pandemic “for a more united and social EU.”
“What sad news the death of President Sassoli,” wrote the leader of the Executive on Twitter, who remembers him as “a progressive friend, a great defender of European values.”
Sánchez has transferred in the aforementioned publication a message of affection to Sassoli’s family and friends, which he has written in Italian.
The 65-year-old socialist had been hospitalized since December 26 for a serious complication caused by a dysfunction of the immune system.
Unfortunately, he died at 1.15 am this Tuesday at the Cancer Reference Center in the city of Aviano, located in the province of Pordenone, in northeastern Italy.
