ROME, September 14. /TASS/. Russia’s participation is needed to fight terrorism and resolve Europe's immigration problem, Renato Brunetta, parliamentary head of Italy’s center-right opposition party Forza Italia, said on Monday.
"It is important to accept refugees but at the same time, this provides no solution to the problem. We should eradicate the phenomenon of mass exodus, which is connected with the spread of Islamic fundamentalism and Islamic State's expansion," Brunetta said. "That’s why we need an agreement with Russia — a member of the United Nations Security Council. Only with Russia’s participation, international interference under the auspices of the UN will become possible."
Brunetta stressed the overriding importance of tackling terrorism to stem the flow of migrants.
He urged to return in relations with Russia to "the spirit of the Pratica di Mare agreements", referring to the deal agreed at the Italian air base near Rome in 2002 to create a new NATO-Russia Council.
