MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated Paolo Gentiloni on his appointement as Italian Prime Minister in a telephone conversation, the Kremlin press service said on Tuesday.
"The attitude toward further development of mutually beneficial Russian-Italian cooperation was confirmed. Several relevant issues on the international agenda were also discussed," the press service added.
The Russian president earlier sent Gentiloni a congratulatory telegram.
The new Italian government was formed by Gentiloni, who served as the country's Foreign Minister, after Matteo Renzi's resignation. The new cabinet won confidence votes from both the lower and upper houses of Italian parliament.
