"We loud the Italian leadership’s consistent policy aimed at maintaining dialogue with Russia. This position is rooted in public moods. Some of Italy’s parties have even initiated parliamentary resolutions recommending to abandon the sanctions. It reflects the opinion of the business community the majority of members of which want these sanctions to be lifted as they sustain big losses," the Russian ambassador told journalists.
He thus commented on the results of the European Union’s recent summit where, according to media reports, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi had insisted provisions on possible sanctions against allies of Syrian President Bashar Assad be crossed out from the final document.
