ROME, November 7. /TASS/. It is important to maintain a hard line towards Russia but dialogue is also necessary, Italy’s Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said on Monday while on a visit to Georgia’s capital of Tbilisi.
"I wouldn’t like to interfere in the US presidential race but I hope that the new US administration will continue the course adopted in the past years. On one hand, we need to adhere to the principle of ensuring our allies’ security and preventing Moscow from taking unjustifiable steps. On the other hand, we shouldn’t go back to the logic of the Cold War, but maintain the channels for dialogue with Russia, retain economic relations and avoid acts of aggression instead," the Italian ANSA news agency quoted Gentiloni as saying.
According to the Italian top diplomat, "a mechanism for dialogue has been established lately" for settling regional crises, including those in the Caucasus and Ukraine.
"We shouldn’t lose this tie," he noted.
