STRELNA, September 6 (Itar-Tass) - Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta said after the G20 summit on Friday that Italy would continue exerting efforts to overcome differences on Syrian crisis and defend a political settlement to the conflict.
He said that progress on economic issues had compensated disappointment from discussions on Syria.
“The summit discussed and approved all the five priorities raised by Italy,” Letta said. He added that special attention had been paid to youth unemployment.
The Italian prime minister said that Italy was no longer regarded as a country posing an economic threat. According to Letta, Italy’s vote had more weight at the recent G20 summit than in previous years.
