ROME, September 30. /TASS/. Italy considers Russia’s role in resolving conflicts in the Middle East and Mediterranean absolutely crucial despite the sanctions, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said on Wednesday.
"Despite the imposed sanctions, Italy is in favor of Russia’s participation in negotiations on the Middle East and Mediterranean conflicts resolution as well as in building a new world order," Renzi said in reply to the question whether Rome was ready to back Russia’s decision to bomb the positions of the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria.
Renzi also said that "the resumption of dialogue between the Russian and US presidents is a positive factor."
