ROME, November 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Italy has been supporting the idea of having a multipolar platform for making global decisions, where all member-countries of an international dialogue are responsible, the country’s Prime Minister Enrico Letta said in an interview with Itar-Tass, Rossiya-24 television broadcaster and Rossiiskaya Gazeta.
“I consider as necessary the establishment of relations in a format like G-20, and Italy has always supported it,” the prime minister said. “It is an effective economic and political forum, which represents fully all new players, like, for example, China and India. I do not mention Russia here, as the country has been a member of G-8 for quite a time.”
Italy’s prime minister stressed that the participation of those countries in the multipolar system of decision making is very important, “as this way every country may undertake a part of responsibility for future development.”
Uniting different countries like Russia, Brazil, China, India and South Africa into BRICS, despite the ability to undertake effective practical decisions, is an “excessive simplifying,” the prime minister said.
