ROME, November 24, 19:41 /ITAR-TASS/. Italy consistently comes out in favor of a multi-polar international floor for making global decisions, for which all countries involved in this international dialogue would be responsible, Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta said in an interview with Itar-Tass, Rossiya-24 television and the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily.
“I believe it is essential to establish relations in such a format as G20, and Italy has always been its consistent supporter. This is an efficient economic and political forum, where all these new players such as for example China and India are presented fully. I am not speaking about Russia, as it has been G8 member since long,” the prime minister said.
He believes participation of these countries in a multi-polar system of decision making is very important, “as thus each of them can assume part of responsibility for the future development”.
“Time has come for a big international dialogue, where Russia, owing to its experience, can make a major contribution,” Letta said.
He believes, however, that the association of such different countries as Russia, Brazil, China, India and South Africa into the BRICS group of nations, is “unreasonable oversimplification” despite their ability to make efficient practical decisions.
