The Italian government will strive to lift anti-Russian sanctions
Italy is not going to support the sanctions against Russia, according to newly-appointed Prime Minister of Italy Giuseppe Conte, who made this statement during his presentation in the senate before vote of confidence to his government, TASS informs.
According to Prime Minister, they plan to call for reviewing the sanctions in relation to Russia. Conte has noted that, first of all, the new Italian Government is interested in lifting the restrictions harming the economics and civil society of the country.
Prime Minister has assured that Rome will be utterly and completely open to Moscow and has reminded that Russia has been playing an important role in settling many international conflicts within the last several years.
At the same time Italy is not going to leave NATO and the US remain an important privileged partner for this country.
The Italian politicians have many times spoken about the necessity to lift the sanctions. In their opinion, they are absolutely useless.
A program of the new Italian Government formed by the Northern League and the Five Star Movement has been published not so long ago. The program contains information on the agreement with NATO as an ally. At this, Italy advocates frank relations with the Russian Federation, as our country is not a threat but a very important economical partner. Besides, it is impossible to resolve conflicts in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen without Russia.
