"Visits by the Russian minister of economic development leading a delegation of Russian businessmen and the Russian foreign minister will take place by the yearend. They will take part in various conferences," the Russian diplomat said at the closing ceremony of the 5th Eurasian forum.
According to Razov, relations between Russia and Italy are seeing sustainable development, despite all the difficulties of the recent years. In his words, Italy is paying major attention to the development of cooperation with all countries of the Eurasian region.
"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.
