The Italian Senate supported the call for normalization of dialogue between Russia and the European Union, TASS reports. The upper house of parliament approved a resolution. The document was supported by the parties of the ruling majority. The author of the text of the resolution, Senator Vito Petrocelli, explained that the document had already been sent to the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According to the politician, the resolution offers the government to take a more active position in establishing relations with Moscow, including the format of the European Union. Perhaps, Petrocelli suggested, parliamentarians in the lower house would take the same initiative to pass a resolution. He recalled that next month inter-parliamentary consultations will be held in the Italian capital. Deputies of the State Duma will come to Rome to meet with their colleagues.

The resolution also notes that the government was instructed to “seek within the EU and in cooperation with other member countries to change the vector of relations with the Russian Federation in order to constructively cooperate in considering the effectiveness and feasibility of the sanctions regime using targeted measures that do not impede the growth of bilateral trade exchanges.
