ROME, June 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Italy’s top diplomat has expressed hope that the Group of Seven will return to the G8 format soon.
The G8 format ended its work amid the political crisis in Ukraine.
“It is important that Russia take responsibility for resolving the Ukrainian crisis and resume its role in the world community,” Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini said on Saturday.
“The return to the G8 format depends on Moscow,” she said.
In addition, Mogherini said she heard the encouraging signals from new Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko.
“The restoration of Ukrainian-Russian partnership will meet the interests of the EU and the trans-Atlantic community,” she said.
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano, who attended the D-Day celebrations in Normandy, said, “The role played by the Soviet Union and the Red Army in the defeat of Nazism in 1943-1944 created conditions for bringing the participants in the solemn ceremony closer together, including the presidents of Russia and the United States.”
He also praised French President Francois Hollande’s role.
