MILAN, June 10 /TASS/. Russia will help Italy to help solving its problems in the Mediterranean that have been caused by the Libya crisis, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi told a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"We have enlisted Russia’s support for the solution of our Mediterranean problems caused by the situation in Libya," Renzi said.
"Russia plays a very important role, which has been admitted by all countries, in the solution of a number of problems such as the Syrian settlement, negotiations with Iran and the Libyan crisis," Renzi said.
Counteraction to terrorism is another vital issue on the common agenda. "This evil , no matter how it may be called - the ‘Islamic State’ or Al-Qaeda, is posing a threat to the whole world," Renzi said adding it was necessary for major powers like Russia to join common struggle against terrorism.
The Italian prime minister also mentioned G20, which he considers to be a format for cooperation in the solution of economic problems. Renzi added that he and President Putin had agreed to meet at a regular G20 summit in Turkey in November.
"We agreed on our next meeting on the G20 sidelines. This floor can form a good basis for cooperation in the solution of economic problems," Renzi said.
