Italian Farnesina on the situation in Iraq
"The latest developments are of great concern", according to the MAECI ministry
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (Maeci) announces in a statement that "The latest developments of the situation in Iraq are of great concern.
In the last few days, we have witnessed a dangerous escalation culminated in the killing of the Iranian General Soleimani.
Italy makes a strong appeal to act with moderation and responsibility, by keeping open channels for dialogue, avoiding acts which can have serious consequences for the entire region.
No effort should be spared to ensure de-escalation and stability. New outbreaks of tension are in nobody's interest and are likely to be fertile ground for terrorism and violent extremism".
