But "rigorously under UN sponsorship", says FM in interview

26 November, 11:08

    (ANSAmed) - ROME, NOVEMBER 26 - Italy must not ''repeat the mistake of putting boots on the ground before having a political solution to support'' although ''certainly a peacekeeping operation in Libya, rigorously under UN sponsorship, would see Italy on the frontlines'', Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni told Rome daily La Repubblica in an interview published on Wednesday.

    The minister however stressed that Italy would act provided intervention ''was preceded by a negotiating process towards new elections guaranteed by a government of 'wise men', in the absence of which showing uniforms only risks deteriorating the situation. We are working on it, with countries in the area and the United Nations''.(ANSAmed).
