(ANSA-AFP) - ROME, SEP 20 - European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is "pontificating" about migrant reception while doing nothing to help end Austria's blockade of Italian heavy goods vehicles at the Brenner Pass, Deputy Premier and Transport Minister Matteo Salvini said Wednesday. Salvini, leader of the rightwing League party, accused the EC chief of not signing the start of infringement proceedings against Vienna for its restrictions on heavy goods traffic from Italy. "At this point we trust in the justice of the European Court," he said.
    "You can't pontificate at Italy's expense, seeking reception and integration at Lampedusa, while blocking the border at the Brenner Pass. "This government will put an end to this disgrace". (ANSA-AFP).
