    (ANSAmed) - ROME, OCTOBER 3 - Foreign Minister Emma Bonino said Thursday before meeting with her Saudi counterpart Saud Al-Faisal that the two countries still diverge on their positions as concerns women's rights and the death penalty. The comment was made just prior to the Italy-Saudi Arabia forum underway at the Italian Senate.

    However, the minister said that she hoped the differences could soon be narrowed, noting that the Saudi government had already initiated reform. (ANSAmed).
