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.
